FLASHBACK: Directing Theophilus London’s “I Want You” (Summer 2010)

Just remembered that I voiced Theophilus’s Mixtape “I WANT YOU” and directed this little black and white gem for it!

collaborating with THEOPHILUS has been one of the most fulfilling projects i’ve ever had the honor of being apart of, hands down.

first it was the mixtape “I WANT YOU”, where he asked me to lend some vocals earlier this year -taking me out of my comfort zone. i’d been asked by music making friends to do the same before, but always shied (by the way i’m shocked that thats the correct spelling of the past tense for “shy”) away from the microphone. this time it seemed just right. it was a real collaboration between two like minded artists…and the first of many!

next up, it was creating videos (more so visuals) that would be paired perfectly with the genius music he’s effortlessly been creating for his mixtape. i had an idea for “I WANT YOU”, pitched it to THEO and it was done.

this would be the most sexual piece of work i’ve ever created…listening to the song gave me all the visuals to work with.

*directing something so sexual was hard, but fun at the same time…i’d say to GLENN “spread your legs…part your lips…writhe on the bed…”. every direction was followed by a “sorry” because i felt so rude sayings those things.
