I’d like to say a huge thank you to my film crew for the “Castaway” music video. It’s been one of the most intense weeks of my life. Mack Damon pushed me to levels I didn’t know I was capable of, and he and my cinematographer/DP Darren Abate created pure magic on screen. Our gaffer Ralph Lopez from Indie Grip and Lighting went above and beyond to create the perfect lighting for every scene, and Jesse Maldonado did a fantastic job setting up and operating the crane. My makeup artists Ashley Kravitz and Janet Benavidez made me look flawless the entire time. Gabe Garces was on hand creating slates, setting up, tearing down, and keeping me laughing, and Miguel Natal documented the whole experience with behind the scenes footage and photos. Josh Aldama was such a good sport playing the part of my onscreen loved one, and I had a blast shooting photos with him. Last, but certainly not least, my beautiful mama fed us, ran our errands, and kept us all strong with prayers. I felt all my family and friends’ love and support this week.
All of that to say…thank you all for being part of my journey and a part of the #Castaway music video!
