Music Video

Higher Love

Music Video Shoot - HIGHER LOVE is a true example of how our team is able to make a deep connection with our clients and stick with them through not only the creative process of one project, but the creative process of their career. Carishma is the beautiful artist behind Higher Love and has been working with Brian Thomas for the past ten years.

Carishma found BT 10 years ago when she was looking for a choreographer for her new single. As soon as they met, she instantly knew that BT was the right guy for the job and she asked him to choreograph for her new music video “Glow in the Dark”. Their working relationship had unbeatable chemistry and the team at SKP became her go to when it came to future artistic endeavors.

BT came in as Artistic Director of a commercial for her skincare product, “White Orange”. Most recently, she finished her new album and has hired BT and the team to direct and produce all of her music videos. Higher Love is the first of many to come. Here’s to longevity in the creative process! We love our clients as much as they love us!

I find it very special when two artists have a safe space to collaborate and make magic. And one of the best environments is where both people run with one another's crazy ideas and give them an opportunity for breath. That is how I feel about working with Brian. He is open to imagination, he is patient during the process, and he offers his own creativity when sparked with an idea. It also takes an individual who has an eye when it comes to photography and direction. Since Brian is an artist that dabbles in many avenues, he is able to see the human form in a different way than most. He is able to capture commercial or switch to a more artistic approach; he knows lighting, movement, and is a brilliant concept designer; and he is able to offer guidance during a shoot which is very important to a project's success especially if you find yourself unsure of what to do in the moment. I recommend working with this human being if you are new to the industry, if you are seasoned and need to venture into a different evolution of yourself, if you know what you want and you need someone who can capture that idea even if it is in raw form, or if you simply want an experience or product that is worth the money spent. The energy he brings to his work, the kindness he treats all individuals with, his professionalism and knowledge in the field of art, and his dedication to having a wonderful product outweighs any money you could spend during the process. He is a GUARANTEE!!
