Detective Jones 

Music Video, 2014

Casting call

As far as crazy castings go, the story behind this one still wins. I saw this crazy charismatic girl dancing at a night club and months later started basing my main character on her. As the screenplay developed, I started thinking about how great it would be to try to find her again, somehow.

On a random afternoon, my friend called and asked the description for my dream star, then confirmed she was on the tram with him. He hanged up, ran out, entered a building, climed the second floor, knocked three times. When a bunch of girl opened, he had a hard time explaning the reason for his visit. After mentioning his friend, me, wanted to potentially talk to this one girl about starring in his video, the girl appeared out of the back, confessed she was actually a dancing student, accepted the invitation to coffee and later went on to lead the music video with charisma from beyond. 

Thanks Ivana.
