Janelle Monáe’s “Tightrope” Music Video in HD!!!!

So many of you have seen the trailer and even more of you have seen the video by now. I have gotten all of the tweets, etc asking why I hadn’t yet posted it on my blog. Well, I thought I’d wait for that high definition and here it is.

This video is the kind of video that makes you want to body roll at your desk.  It has moments that you will remember while you are on the train listening to Tightrope on repeat on your iPod (or your Zune) and as one of the creatives involved, I feel comfortable in letting you know that a great deal of hard work and thought went into the pre-production, performance, wardrobing, and especially the editing of this project. So many people have said that they have listened to the song over and over and over and it has yet to stop jamming.  It is our sincere hope that you experience the same re-playability with this video.

Special thanks to all of the interns in the Wondaland Arts Society. The production team told us that we have “the best interns in the world!” Thanks to Jannie, Wendy, Par, and whoever was responsible for the McDonald’s breakfast sandwiches.

This project is the second music video of Janelle Monáe’s that I have had the pleasure of working on/in.  Undeniably a labor of love, I can tell you that this project (THE ARCHANDROID May 18th) is going to be one of the most emotional experiences you have ever had with music. As you watch this video, remember this moment and know that one day you will be packing your children’s lunches in Janelle Monáe lunchboxes.

Stay tuned for the Beyond the Video spot and some exclusive footage of the Making of the Tightrope video.

*If you look really closely, you might see someone you recognize.

I love her window seat.

In the unfortunate event that you did not know who the Matt and Kim referenced in the text at the beginning of Erykah’s video, get from under that rock and see below:

I stopped off in San Francisco

We took a walk around all of the touristy spots in San Fran: Lombard, Hayde, Pier 39 and had crepes and salmon burgers and Paul Masson.  A great day in San Fran for sure.

I find that with every city we go to the person we know that lives there never wants to spend their off day doing the tourist stuff. “I don’t go to Pier 39, there are too many white people and Asians,” said Shavonne Reel. WHAT??

“Even if you weren’t watching, I’d be doing this anyway.”

So you know the campaign. My modus operandi is to use my gifts even if nobody ever sees me using them. I promise to give what I give to prove that I lived. So it doesn’t matter is anybody ever sees…
but we like when they watch.

I might be giving up the Berry

I’ve been playing with the idea of getting an iPhone. It is no longer a luxury. The Berry just doesn’t browse fast enough, the hour glass drives me crazy, and people can hear me clicking when I’m texting (when I shouldn’t be).Last night Jane did an event for a certain phone company and we got a chance to preview this phone (which ONLY cost $199 and will be out in 7 days). Um, yeah…it’s like that. I heard some VERY reliable iPhone users and techies say that it was well, “Better.”I hope they snood us a swag, if not I might have to cop the drop.

Vodpod videos no longer available.
