My First Music Video: Temptation

I’m very excited to announce the release of my FIRST music video!

Check out “Temptation” here:

Here are some photos from the shoot:

Here’s the pile of stuff we kept moving around for the different shots.

As you may notice, I am wearing sandals, and my dangerous heels are sitting next to my guitar. My heels got stuck in the mud when I walked, so I only wore the heels when it was necessary for the shot 🙂

The lonely tripod trying to stay balanced on the muddy ground :-P

Did you know that in addition to writing screenplays and short stories and directing, C.L. Manion also does AWESOME hair and makeup?

It was very entertaining. And I am so glad there are photos of it 🙂

After I laughed at C.L. Manion, I gave her what she was asking for.

The fact that this music video exists is something I owe to:

C.L. Manion– Video Director
Yasir Alhumaidan- Cameraman & Editor
Caleb Behnke– Production Assistant

I am so grateful for them all!

It was a lifelong dream to make a CD! The fact that I now have a music video too is something I never imagined possible!
