In spring of this year, I was contacted very unexpectedly by a local singer and musician called Dwayne Humphrey. Dwayne was already the front man for a successful local band called Mask. While still committed to his band, he was also compiling is debut album as a solo artist.
He was looking for a ballet dancer to feature in the music video for his song ‘Lasts Forever’.
And so our journey began!
I choreographed the dance for Abbie (14 years) who is one of my senior students at Fiona L Campbell Ballet. We spent hours rehearsing and perfecting each move!
In May a professional videographer was assigned to shoot the viedo. In September the final video edit was completed. What an impressive performance from Abbie. The perfect visuals for a great song.
On October 28th, Dwayne’s solo album ‘Taming Demons’ was released. It is hard to believe that our journey has come to an end. Abbie and I enjoyed every minute.
I would like to take this opportunity to express my thanks to Abbie for her stunning performance, focus and professionalism and to Dwayne for this opportunity.
Here is the link to the music video on YouTube which you can also see further down this page: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cF8gePebkdM. Please view, like and share, share share!
I have posted up a small selection of photos from the day of the video shoot.
I hope you enjoy the video!
