Caleb Minter asked me to create a black & white music video for his single ‘Gone Too Soon,’ which is dedicated to his older brother Clarence Minter Jr. who was killed by gun violence.
The mood of the song ruled the day when it came to coming up with the art direction for this video. Long cuts, smooth movement and soft yet dramatic lighting was used to bring out the emotion’s of Marcus Matteo’s voice and the precision picking of guitarist Daniel Peters.

I directed this music video for singer Caleb Minter. The Atlanta pop and R&B artist came to Chicago and we shot the video on location and in my south loop Chicago studio.
