Nate Jacobs, founder and artistic director of West Coast Black Theater Troupe, reached out to me about shooting a music video. I'm not much of a music video creator but I knew could create something. After he told me the idea, I knew I could pull it off. Essentially, "Heavenly Father" is Nate's, Marvin Gaye's "What's Going On", which is a powerful message about today's problems and social issues. Nate and E.J. Porter recorded the song over a year ago but after what happened in Charlottesville, Nate felt it was time to put visuals to the music. I pulled news scenes of riots, protest and other powerful shots of resistance as cutaways in the video to express the sentiments of the song. Nate was extremely happy with the results and I think we got the songs point across.
