'ARTISTS': Of course you have Mark Ronson, Bruno Mars and his dancing Band. As well, this 'music video' story is supported by 'principle' and 'background actors' hired through the diligence of Dustin Blackburn Casting at the Beverly Hills Casting office plus, of course, the ‘production company’ - DNA. Media reviews (see last page on this site) seem to indicate that we have done a ‘bang up’ job.
'MUSIC VIDEO' TECHNIQUES: To produce a 'hot music video' first one needs an inventive 'frame' or 'scenario'. This 'sparks' each additional creation throughout the 'project' plus 'hooks' the viewers.
"Turn it up" says Bruno about the muted 'playback' during one "UpTown Funk" 'take'. Although 'talent lip syncs', to properly create, the 'song' volume must be 'booming'. This helps enable each 'take' to equal the energy level of a 'live concert'. The same needs to be true for the 'music video's look'. Referring to the block party scene's challenging 'lighting' and uncooperative 'smoke machine', 'co-director' Mars thought that 'set' looked like "daytime TV". Diligence and 'professionalism' fixed these 'tech' problems plus others.
Finally, ‘playing' all 'action in sync' with the 'song's beat, lyrics' and 'mood', to succeed, all aspects of the 'music video' must be 'TIGHT'!
'STAR' - BRUNO MARS: Often a ‘star driven vehicle’, the 'music video' gets fans visually into the 'cut'. Being the 'star' during creation usually means fewer breaks than any other workers on the relatively 'short shoot'. Therein, I've never been with an 'artist' that worked harder than this one. Bruno's energy was boundless in a near twenty hour day of shooting. Further, his commitment to excellence can do nothing but make this 'production' very successful.
THE 'SONG': It feels like a hot, updated Morris Day and the Time. The fans will go wild and awards should follow. CONGRATULATIONS!

MY FAVORITE SCENE: Video's 'cleanest' moment is a dance / drinking 'bit' during the song's 'bridge'. Like in 'musical theatre', the 'lazzi' is best when well executed and on point.
