Music Video Roundup

It’s been 8 Months since the last posting. Goes to show we’re really working doesn’t it? We admit, it’s been busy — full time on Tomorrowland since the summer — but we did do some CMT music videos on the weekends. Who needs weekends anyway? The above pyrotechnics were done by BrantFX on Wes Mack’s video for One More Girl – “Love Like Mine” featuring up and coming: Carly McKillip and Britt McKillip — who have been turning eyes across Canada as a young sister duet. The other two video are for Wes Mack — “Our Soundtrack” & “Duet”. The second one is a collaboration with Carly McKillip. We enjoyed working with DOP Jan Klompje on all of theses videos and look forward to working with him again soon.
