David Santo 831 Song


This is an exciting week for one of my clients. If you are not following @davidsantomusic Please do so immediately.

David Santo is an artist of impeccable integrity and artistic genius. His music will take you through a magical journey of unparalleled artistry.

His latest creation 831 is an electronic soulful love song that is reminiscent of Peter Gabriel. 

The song was produced in association with @iamgabrielmusic and is a masterful work of art.

When creating projects for clients there are so many intricate details in developing a piece of work that matches that artist’s artistic vision.

I filmed three different concert events taking hundreds of pictures and recorded hours of interviews. The result is the beginning of rebranding of this artist with a bold new vision for that journey.  I think the real art of what I do is in getting to know my clients very well.  Sometimes they squawk about the budget but in the end, they get very excited when they see their vision come to fruition.  I think it’s also at that moment they finally realize all the hats that I have worn so comfortably. I’ve been their director, producer, writer, friend, confidant and memory keeper. The last and most important role I play in creating a new brand experience is that of a dreamcatcher.  That moment when I see in their eyes that their new dream is being realized.  Most of my clients are people who are at the top of their field. They live a level of profound excellence rarely found in others. So when I capture their story in a way that makes them giddy with excitement. That is the moment for me which is more than money can buy. It’s when I get a glimpse through their artistic eyes at my own creative excellence. Thank You @davidsantomusic Your music is brilliant and I’m honored to be telling your story.

Pizza Rolls • Music Video CLC

It’s funny how a song about pizza rolls has turned into so much creative fun! Teaching my students that you must always be prepared for success, we shot and created this little interview promo video. I’m very proud of the hard work they have been putting in. “PIZZA ROLLS YEA I GOT IT BAD! LOL”

K2.0 • Students Teaching Students

When teaching you want to take chances when trying to instill confidence into your students. Today I allowed a student to teach his peers in the recording studio. It went far better than I ever expected.

A tour of Detroit School of Digital Technology

I want to thank Taurean Thomas at DSDT for giving my students a tour of the facility. Imagine a school built from the ashes of an old police station. I love taking my students to DSDT. They are a very inspiring group of educators.
