My first MUSIC VIDEO :::::: Bamboo Bros, KURIOUS JORGE and DAVE DAR / " Make A Fortune "

You all know I have created " Art Episode ", that titled I borrowed that from Giannina Gutierrez, from all her art adventures at camaradas and other venues.

I borrowed that name to film many of our mutual art friends all over the city and beyond.. and such it stuck. Many people have viewed my videos including a friend by the name of Jorge, also known as the MC named KURIOUS JORGE, who made many songs during the late 80's early 90's.

He also supported all my art show by being there, and that means a lot. Our kids love each other and play often in the parks when ever the temperature permits, and thus a family friend relationship started.

After viewing a few of my art episodes, Kurious Jorge asked if I would be interested in making a video for him. I was so delighted and stunned because I never did a music video before! He gave me the CD of the album that he and Dave Dar was on, and asked me to pick a song from there and talk more about the idea that I might get from after hearing the sounds.

I heard allot of the CD and the #2 of the music was a hit! I totally visualized all the ideas of the video starting from the HOOK, and from there meetings to make it possible was possible.

They needed a better camera that what I was using, and the other person I remember that had such a camera was Giovanni G. also know as Gio BUZZ Saw... who works for http://www.getkuku.com/

With Gio's help, and his skaters and bikers, all I needed was a location.

The place was so embedded in my memory I thought of one skate park which used to be across the streets from another friend name LEXI BELLA, Monroe street under the bridge.

EVEY THING was working well... and this promo video is just an essence to what will become.

I thank you all for reading and sharing with my my art experience via paint and or video...
