Hey everyone Wesley Alley here!!!
So I know I know, I skipped my blog post for February. ITS ONLY THE SECOND MONTH IN THE YEAR AND YOU ARE ALREADY MISSING BLOG POSTS? Well yeah! I am a busy man get off my back!!! But in all seriousness, I am sorry i missed posting last month, I had so so so much going on i wanted to write, but I just kept putting it off, and then ran out of time, and the next thing I know March is halfway over… So Sorry guys!!!
But here is what’s up! I have made some good headway on a movie I am directing, as well as I started directing a super secret horror project… Shhhhhh they are both a secret right now so I can’t tell you about those, but just know that both are very very very awesome!!!! (And yes, I will tell you all more info soon! well as soon as I can!!!)
Here is what I can tell you about!!! first off I directed another music video. It is an R and B music video for the amazingly talented L. Young http://lyoungmusic.com! You might know him from his super famous acapella music videos he does… check out his youtube channel after the video, it’s amazing and this guys is very talented. Not only does he do those acapella videos but he recently released a studio album of his original work, and this is the video for his first single!!!
The Album is “4ever Young” and the song is called “Knocked Out”. We wanted to make a true R and B music video that was true to all the amazing 90’s R and B videos that were so popular. I think we succeeded… The video stars L. Young, himself, and comedian/actress Talithia Lewis, AKA Pretty Ricki Fontaine (Who is not only beautiful, but funny, nice and cool). Special thanks to: Lauri Harjo Taylor, Susan Hilton, Brian C. Chenworth, Gabriel Gely, and Melissa Thornton!!!! Without you guys, L. and I could never have made this video! Let me know what you think…
That song was Hot right?!?!?!?!?!?! So Hot I had a baby!!!!! Right? Right? Okay all jokes aside. What did you think? Okay full disclosure if you regularly read my blogs which I know you all do…. Then you already knew that me and my beautiful wife were expecting another amazing little bundle of joy. A girl to be exact. I know this blog is for filmmaking and my career as a director, but I post so many pictures of Alice (My first born daughter) that I really, really, wanted to show off my 2nd little girl too!!!! She was born about a week ago, and is just amazing!!!!! Her name is Savannah and she made me cry! I told you all how I cried during the birth of Alice and how amazing she is and how she was the best thing I ever had a hand in making, well the same goes for Savannah, equally as incredible the second time around! Most of you don’t know this, well almost everyone doesn’t know this, but 2 years ago when Alice was born I wrote a kids book for her. Its called “My Favorite Monster” and out of sheer laziness on my part I have yet to query it, or try and get it published but I am going to try now! Because I am in the middle of writing another one now, called “You Can Have More Then One Favorite Monster”. I am rather embarrassed that I have yet to get Alice’s book published, but now I actually have the ideas for 10 or so more kids books, and after I finish writing this next one for my new daughter I actually plan on putting in the effort and getting them published. They are super cute and fun!!! But enough about me!!! Here is Savannah!!!!!
