    Hi guys, I wanted to share this particular music video I directed in Reunion Island for an electro band called Labelle.
    The song is about soul's transmition from our ancestors. The title is "lait sacré" meaning sacred milk.
    The clip is a journey through the spirits present on the Island.

    Our total budget was very low, but was compensated with ideas and self motivation. We had total artistic freedom from the musician so we ended up with a super creative team and great ideas. Art direction was taken care by two very talented artists. KidKreol & Boogie. ( http://kidkreol-and-boogie.tumblr.com/ ) Boogie created his own costume, everything is totally handcrafted, he is also the main role and the lead voice.
    Kidkreol is always full of surrealist sketches giving us colorful thought. I am so proud to collaborate with them.

    It was filmed using a Red Epic and a complete set of Contax Zeiss. But I have to say one of my favorite of all was the Sigma 18-35mm 1.8. It produces super sharp images and no vignette @ 5k 2:1 if you remove sunshade. 5K is such a great thing when reframing and for post stabilization as we worked with tight crew of 3 persons and one actor.
    All the Editing, the Vfx, the color corrections were done by Tika and Myself in our studio ( http://www.pixel-dealer.com ) It took 3 mouths to complete the whole video from the first timelapses to compositing.
    Please take 4min of your time, watch it full HD on the best screen you can, chill out... If you are kind enough, maybe you can share your feedback too, we look forward to it. RED is amazing, REDuser is also an amazing community. Love from Reunion Island

    Thanks Ethan, I really appreciate.
    You're right it was fun all the way. One of the great thing was being on location at 4 A.M most of the time. The sun is a superstar and he never produced the same light twice. Those ending shots are part of the early morning session.
