I was able to really push my abilities as an actor in Lilly's latest skit. I played "white person". Full video on @iisuperwomanii's YouTube channel.
Part 1 Favorite scene in the #spiderman parody I made with @kingbach. Bach wrote a funny script, and then he got talented actor friends @msjennawillis and Chris Wylde to improv with him and make it even more funny. I almost busted out laughing behind the camera when Jenna moaned and Chris said "Oh!" And still after seeing it scores of times during the editing/sound design/coloring process I still laugh every time. Mad respect to the performers. I love all the subtle things they do to make this scene perfection (Jenna's look before she turns around, Bach's quiet "Um, okay" & upper lip smile in response, and Chris's manic aggression bubbling up through his "hip dad" exterior)
Part 2 I like it when jokes take left turns into complete absurdity. @kingbach's #Spiderman parody takes a huge left turn into an entirely different movie. It's a pretty funny move. And while I helped massage the edit on many of the scenes, this was one scene that Bach knocked out of the park on his first pass Link to the full skit in his bio
If you've known me for more than 5 minutes, you know I want to be directing big action movies. I learned a ton working with @stevebrownwrestler and @garrettxwarren (the guys behind Logan's killer action scenes). Props to @yoshistunts for killing it as @kingbach's double in his new #spiderman parody. We'll have to do it again when we can spend longer than 2 hours on the fight scene 🤜
Some girls just want to dress up as pretty princesses. I've never seen anyone get so excited about being turned into a monster. The idea for her last video of GoT week came to @iisuperwomanii while she was sitting in her makeup chair getting transformed. Lilly got such a kick out of seeing herself mouth the words and dancing like a girl, she added one more video shoot to her already packed schedule even though she was exhausted. And I was right there saying "Yeah, let's keep going! One more scenario on your list. And another." We're crazy. Crazy lucky to play pretend for a profession.
Happy belated birthday to my beautiful bearded bro, @humblethepoet. This is the sexiest footage I have of him from the music video I directed a while back in India. His new work, Righteous/Ratchet is dope. Find it in his bio. Thank me later. Humble's going to be doing big things this year, you don't want to get left behind.
I'm always inspired by Lilly's creative drive & determination. She has a proven history of manifesting the impossible on minuscule budgets. When Lilly handed me the script for this skit and was referencing clips from GoT, my response was "this is funny, but I can't make this look like the show. We have $50 costumes, a single day of filming, and we're shooting on an 80d with kit lenses." She was undeterred in her confidence in her vision. I've got to hand it to her, even though it doesn't look like the show, it totally works, and the concept is even more funny because of the $50 costumes. And a huge shout out to her production and post team that pulls together all the props last second and turns around the post effects on a break neck schedule. ✊️ She's doing a whole week of GoT themed videos. It'll be fun.
Can't decide which of these beauties is more gorgeous . My favorite moment is when @nargisfakhri pulls her number out of her cleavage, because if you look at @iisuperwomanii, she's 0% in character as @iimanjeetii. She's fully enjoying the moment as Lilly. My other favorite shot is when Nargis crouches down to hug Lilly. We shot this over a year ago, and I edited it over 6 months ago. Stoked to see Lilly finish the other music videos that go with this one. See the full video with subtitles on Lilly's YouTube channel
Part 2 of the fight scene I directed for @splack's channel. Fight Choreo by @iamkiing score by @scottdw. All supremely talented guys ✊️
I'm definitely more comfortable behind the camera than in front of it, but smart people that I respect have told me I need to get in front more often. I still need some more practice Longer edit on my second channel: DiegoPueblo
New fight scene I directed for @splack now up on his channel (link in his bio) Choreo by @iamkiing Epic movie score by @scottdw
Seeing Sadaf's photo with Lilly reminded me of this frame grab from my #AT2UI Dubai footage. I'm sure no one pictured is going to love this shot as much as I do, and that's probably why I didn't post it before, but to me you're all beautiful even when you're not posing for the camera (especially then, actually ). Love you all, and I miss you #throwbackthursday

I'm honored to be able to work with people like @iisuperwomanii who strive to make the world a better place and to lift others up. I'm happy for the chance I get to occasionally help her tell her stories and sometimes snap her picture.

Get you someone who looks at you like #TeamSuper looks at @iisuperwomanii. One of my favorite things is watching people wait their turn to hug Lilly. The way their eyes light up when they first see her, but she's still with the person in line in front of them. It's just a look of pure love & joy. I adore it when they are trying to control their smile and play it cool, but their facial muscles and emotions just won't let them, and that angelic smile just can't be kept away. A smile for the camera has a more rehearsed feel than the smile when you're not the center of the universe. When you're looking at something that just makes you feel love

Humberto showing me how to live off the fat of the island. I could seriously sit in the shade, drinking coconut water and listening to him talk all day. Coolest voice ever. @redfrogbeachresort#throwbackthursday

Being in front of the camera is definitely outside my comfort zone, but it's good for me to have to stretch and switch up my creative muscles. Makes me a better director. #throwbackeveryday

Happy Earth Day. This is the only one we've got. Let's keep it habitable.
You don't have Humble there chucking handfuls of Holi powder in your face and me there to film it, but try to have fun in Mumbai without us. JK, you've got Kyle and TS India, how could it be any more fun? Good times
Have an amazing #bawsebook tour @iisuperwomanii ! Can't wait to read it. I was inspired by the little section I was able to look through ✊️Make sure to get enough sleep

Travel expands your mind by giving you the chance to see the world from another perspective #tbt
Is it easier for everyone else to say "You should subscribe" than it is for me? But seriously, I have so much respect for the talented actors I've worked with who can nail their lines, stay in character, and react naturally to their surroundings and scene-mates without getting distracted by the camera and all the things going on that you have to ignore ✊️ Like the talented @lex.vegas who executed her lines much better than me
