throwback: COMMON – “Testify” (dir. ANTHONY MANDLER)

as i started out as a young director, i was also writing treatments (treatments are the video concepts) for other directors. when i was signed to BOX FRESH PICTURES, i had the chance to study alongside ANTHONY MANDLER…he’s a genius visionary. i learned a lot from just being next to him on set as he directed. not to mention, he’s killing the game right now.

when i was asked to write the concept for COMMON’S “TESTIFY”, i was smitten. i mean, the song is ill. i immediately went to work and was so excited to be apart of a collaborative effort.

you can see in the beginning of the video, the reporter asks…”VIOLETTE, how do you feel about the charges”.
