That one time in Las Vegas when I got to tell a story...


The Backstory

I ran across this video on facebook a few months ago:

Which led me to this video:

I thought, who is this guy? His music is really good! his name is Ollie B. I ended up following his page on facebook. A few weeks later, he had a post asking for video help in the Las Vegas area. I thought, hmm.. I'm going to be down there for NAB 2017, let's see if he is interested in me telling a little story about him. So, I messaged him, asked if he'd be up for it, and we ended up making plans to set a shoot up.

After a few hours, this is what we were able to come up with:

  Thanks Ollie for giving me a few hours of your time to film this. It was a pleasure to meet you and I wish you luck in all your future endeavors into music.

It was fun to challenge myself to pack limited gear, keep sharpening my storytelling skillset and literally ask someone out of the blue if they would be interested in offering some time to tell their story on video.
