It's not lame, it's lamé!
Amongst the fun animated projects I've gotten to be a part of lately, I directed this live action music video for my friend Monica Howe, a.k.a. LaMuff. It was a lot of fun to get back into directing live action again and stretch those muscles!
The all-star crew of this video helped create an ornate world for LaMuff through golden art direction/wardrobe/makeup, rad choreography, fun performances, not to mention her catchy tune that inspired it all.
Check out LaMuff's other songs, too. They're all really clever and will make you want to rock out in front of your computer.
