BEHIND THE SCENES AT DANCE FOR DEMOCRACY VIDEO SHOOT


Member Antonio Martinez is a master of social media and communication. He faithfully posts his projects, always careful to tag Answers4dancers. So when Antonio was featured in a behind-the-scenes video for the Dance For Democracy (D4D) campaign, he captured our attention.

Antonio is repped by McDonald Selznick Associates in Los Angeles and we learned that MSA Founder and Senior Agent as well as trailblazing visionary Julie McDonald was the force behind the entire project. Julie shared with us how it all unfolded:

D4D was actually my brainchild and I produced the video with a wonderful producer named Pam Tarr who deserves quite a bit of the credit. She brought in an incredible post production company, Spot Welders, and iconic video Director, Sam Bayer. The song is an original by recording artist Macy Gray.

And while this project was originally focused on the November mid-term elections, the message is so important that a second video was released featuring Antonio who shares how he got involved:

I had met Keith Young on a recent Cadillac commercial MSA booked me on! I was a salsa dancer for this national spot. Because it was so easy working with Keith, and because he knew I was versatile, he asked me to be a part of Dance For Democracy! Of course I said yes without hesitation!

Antonio continues, All of the choreography was taught and performed on the same day. Literally ... all of what you see in the video was created through teamwork and structured improv, then solidified right before taping. The project turned out great and I am beyond thankful to Julie for all her hard work!

The dancers featured in the video along with Antonio include A4D member Emmy Frevele, William Bell, Owen Scarlett, Destiny Gin, Savannah Le, Giselle Mafud, Kendie Jones, Parker Blakely, and Chase Anodson.
