On Friday, my friend Myla Smith released the music video for her latest single, "Slow Down," from her new EP Drugs. I'm excited to say that I participated in the filming of the video about a month ago! Myla needed another pair of arms to do things around the periphery of the shot, and I was happy to help. The shoot was SO much fun! Especially for a Pop-Up Video junkie like me - I now have a much better understanding of the behind-the-scenes process. It's all more complicated than it looks!
(My arms may be eligible for a SAG card. I'll look into it.)
By Saturday morning, the video had 45,000 views. Now the count is over 75,000! On top of that, Drugs hit #1 on Amazon's singer-songwriter album charts this morning. #1!!! I am THRILLED and proud to see Myla get some of the attention and exposure she deserves after years of perseverance and hard work. I'm also not surprised that the message of "Slow Down" is resonating with so many people. I need to hear it every time. May this be the beginning of even bigger things!!!
PS - next time my elbows will be seen by 75,000 people, I'll be sure to exfoliate.
