Isis Sonatra, an up-and-coming recording artist hailing from Miami, partnered with Litewave Media to produce a music video for her new single “Will You Be My Boyfriend?”.
Impressed with Litewave Media’s track record of successful music videos (with over 2 million views from our two latest music videos), Isis traveled all the way across Florida with her dance crew to film with Litewave Media and its crew. ”I am so thankful that I found a video studio in Florida with the quality of L.A. and the touch of being at home. You guys rock!” Isis said.
One of the scenes shot at Litewave Studios, Tampa Video Studio, features a sensuous salsa dance scene between Isis and her ‘boyfriend’, played by Leandro Freiria. Jeff, our set designer, used faux brick wall flats with parts of the white cyc exposed (saturated in red and blue lights at different points in the video) to create an urban stylized background. Anya and Melissa, our hair and makeup team, styled and created several glamorous looks for Isis throughout the video.
Litewave Studios’ newest weapon in the arsenal is ‘The Rain Machine’ which we used to film Isis’ dance sequence. Built by Randy, our video studio engineer and Pinky, our studio tech, The Rain Machine creates a realistic rain effect in an 8′ square area. Litewave Studios’ lighting designer, Andrew, and his grip Sasha, used a strong backlight to accentuate the rain to create this unique, colorful shot.
Isis, along with Christian, the Director and DP, found several locations in St. Petersburg, including some picturesque sunrise footage at The Getaway Tiki Bar on the water, Beach Drive downtown, and even a horse and carriage ride through Straub Park. Litewave Studios worked hand-in-hand with the Pinellas County Film Commission to secure permits to film in these locations. Our Assistant Camera, Brandon, 2nd Unit DP, John and Production Assistant, Tony also kept the wheels turning smoothly over the two-day shoot.
Another scene features Isis and her dance crew on a downtown St. Petersburg Street. Decked out in colorful gear, the crew performs ahigh-energy dance routine, choreographed by Miami choreographer Ralph Cummings.
