TV On The Radio - Lazzeray
I got a call from Tunde, the lead singer of TV On The Radio, and he asked me to direct a music video for the band. I had never directed a video before, so it was a bit of a scary feat. I knew the only way I could pull it off was to have help from some of the best in the business, so I called Greg Hunt and Chris Murphy, knowing that we could make this happen if they were on board. Tunde had the idea of a band playing around skateboarding, and Greg, Chris, and I brainstormed and came up with the idea of it being a skater, alone at a skatepark, imagining the best session ever. I knew I needed the best skaters to show up, and thankfully, they showed up and we were able to capture great skating for the video. The video was made on a very tight budget and just people believing in me to make this happen. I am forever in debt to all those people. Hope you enjoy. —Atiba Jefferson
