Diplo – Day In The Life of Diplo

This was a fun project full of whimsical elves, twerkers, ninjas and Feather the white horse. Oh, did I mention James Van Der Beek? While my 30 year old female fans dry their panties… yes ladies, he really was a charming heart throb but more importantly one of the most professional actors I have had the opportunity to work with. Not only did he do his own “stunts” but worked closely with Team Emig to create an amazing fight scene.
Director Brandon Dermer with another story to tell, full of detail and the ability to take us all on a wonderful adventure into the Life of Diplo.
We had just finished shooting ‘A New Beginning‘ and jumped straight into scouting recording studios all over the greater Los Angeles area.  It’s always a pleasure working with a tight crew who all want the same thing. Once again, Squad! Anthem stepped up to the plate and all of the names listed below knocked it out of the park.  I look forward to us all party bussin’ it to the October 1st Mad Decent Block Party!  Who’s in… FAM?
