Behind the scenes scenes. Making of ACT II , Nas and Damian .
I know I am being redundant and repetitive but it is something that I feel I have to mention all the time because, well ,its just the right thing to do. .
Once again , we would like to thank our good friends and partners @Leica and @ mochilla for opening up doors to opportunities we know we would not have without them. Special thanks go to Jay electronica for the trust and support he showed us by choosing to work with us , to have our work associated with one of the most sought after rappers in the game is an honor that we hope we can live up to. To the different photographers, editors , directors and producers we worked with this past month , B+ ,Eric Coleman,Michael Park, Byez,Luke Lynch,Jerry Henry ,Andrew Barchilon,Paul McCarthy and Will Quantic, thank you for making this job so much fun and so much easier . For family and friends , we love you.
Last month’s work took us from South Africa to Manchester, first to document the making of one of the most anticipated hip hop albums in history, Jay Electronica’s ACT II . a couple of weeks later , with the same partners in crime, mochilla ,Immortal helped document Nas and Damian Marley tour in Europe, including the opening night at Wembley Arena with the magical Erykah Badu.
Working , shooting and building with some of the best musicians, rappers, producers and photographers in the industry has been surreal at moments, like hearing one of the best beats I have heard in my life drop in a studio in South Africa at 8 am in the morning or standing in the pit in Manchester ,few feet away from Nas and Damian with an M9 , my mind not really grasping what I was capturing .
Did not talk much about South Africa but I think this video that we along with Eric Coleman , shot, edited and produced gives of good indication of how things went down.
