Music Video Trailer“It was a total dream come true, and happened completely unexpected. I was leaving the house on a Sunday morning wearing jeans, my cowgirl boots, and a plaid shirt. I had felt honored that my mother was able to find me the opportunity to be an extra on a music video. I had arrived to the location supper excited and ready for action. That’s when the butterflies really started to kick in. The first thing I noticed was the fact that there was absolutely no parking….anywhere. As I was walking to set, you could easily see e director in plain sight. I shook his hand and was ready to take on the day.
The lead choreographer decided it would be a great idea to teach extras the line dance that was used in the music video for filler roles. She quickly took notice at the fact that I picked up the choreography very fast (we’re talking ten minutes, tops). At which point I had replied with “oh, I am a dancer” A few minutes later I was out of my jeans placed into booty shorts, and a crop top shirt, hair, makeup, and placed as a featured dancer. a few takes later, the director decided that I was a good enough fit, to receive a small acting role.
No I didn’t get paid for the music video in money, but I was well fed with pizza! I was able to talk to the musicians, and both female, and male lead. I have been able to take away experience, respect for the process, and energy for this industry.
I was honored for the experience, and cannot wait for many more to come!”
