A music video from the Assasi project.
As I’ve mentioned before on this blog, throughout this year I’ve been in the process of filming a feature documentary about Zac Allaf, the Syrian rapper known as Assasi. It’s an interesting story — after escaping Syria he floated around Asia for over two years living basically as a refugee until he received the go-ahead to join his American wife in Maine, where he is now trying trying to advance his music career in a challenging environment.
I went out one day to film him while he was making a music video in Bangor and ended up shooting the video myself … Then I ended up coloring the video … then I ended up working on the edit as well.
This was the first music video that I ever worked on, and it gave me some good experience for the next time I find myself hanging out with a camera around musicians …
The video was finished a couple of months ago, but I never really announced it on here. So check it out below.
