Light Portals and Vex Ruffin

Just finished shooting a music video for Vex Ruffin last night. We had lots of fun electrical taping wrongly sized trippy filters onto cameras and rubber hoods. Expect the strangely beautiful dreamlike visuals that-you've-come-to-expect permeate JJ's videos.

Turns out Vex is playing a show this weekend at the Pinoy Festival in San Pedro. To whatever two people read this, join us!
