I was In A Really Weird Iowa Music Video This Weekend
Iowa and Illinois have an amazing music scene. From bands, singers, and rappers. So many people take part in making genuinely great music in our area, and I was asked to be in a music video this weekend.
I do freelance acting in my free time, and have done videos before, but this one was crazy, weird, and fun!
This Sunday I drove down to Cedar Rapids for the shoot at the Sound Box. It was for a rapper known as Price The Poet. When I got there I saw a guy dressed up as Michael Myers, and I was then told to dress as Freddy Krueger.
There were people dancing, screaming, running, and so much more. It was by far one of the weirdest Sunday nights of my life... The masks we had to wear also got very old after about an hour, but we made it!
Everyone involved were amazing!
My favorite part was the down time between takes where we all got to goofy around and have fun. Some local creators take themselves very seriously which is great, but sometimes creates an awkward environment. Not this set though! It was a blast.

While it ended up being a late night, it was a fun night. Big shout out to everyone involved in this super fun shoot. I'll remember this one for a while!
