ABOUT THIS VIDEO: FUNKMODE's back at it again with another world famous Music Video Camp! This time we went with a song that is almost impossible to believe that we've never used before, "Playground" by ABC. We shot this one in a week's time at a local park by our studio. The goal was to create a homage to the original music video while adding our own FUNKMODE flava. Though none of these kids were even close to knowing the first thing about this New Jack Swing era song when the week started, they were fully schooled on the youngest representatives of the East Coast Family by Friday ;)
Thank you to Ellie, Evan, Hila, Izzy, Jadon, Jamison, Joss, Lil Deezy, Maggie, Mylie, Piper, Rosie, Sebastian, Wyatt and all of your families for helping us create yet another AMAZING video!
As always, thanks for watching, subscribing and supporting the FUNK!
Music Video Summer Camp 2 - WORK! - Artists/Songs: Various - August 2016
ABOUT THIS VIDEO: What had happened was, we got a hold of this great shop to use as a location for our shoot. Then, we came up with the idea to make a video about someone bored at work dreaming about getting away from it all. Initially, we were just going to use one of the songs feature here in this video. But then, we kept finding other songs that perfectly fit the theme and dance ideas perfect for each song. Each one seemed better than the one before. THEN, someone had the great idea to tie together the pieces with this a story about a bunch of people working at a shop fighting about making a commercial. The kids got so excited about everything that, next thing you know, we got this whole short story thing going on.
So, much like the ideas within this music video, our simple idea quickly got out of hand and next thing you know, what should have been a 3-5 minute music video fell more into the TV short category.
Special thanks to Via/Lizzie who went from being assistant teachers of the camp to featured actresses. That's just how it goes in a FUNKMODE show, yo.
