Music Videos with Smokey Loco and Mz. Lovely

I was working at a convenience store in south San Diego when Smokey Loco came into the store. The owner of the store (my nephew) told him I was a music video creator. I was hired to make these two videos and i did all the camera work and editing. They were shot around south San Diego, and you can see the place I worked at the time in the "Here to Stay" video.


They were a lot of fun to make and I wish I could make more!

Here to Stay

Money, Power, Respect

Other Music Videos

Alanis Morissette - You Oughta Know

I started making music videos to learn how to edit video in Adobe Premiere Pro. Alanis Morissette's You Oughta Know was the first one I made, using video from the PlayStation game Parasite Eve. Back then, after editing, my 486 machine took about 20 hours to encode a 3-minute video!

I think this is one of the best-timed videos I've made with the video seemingly lining up with the music easily.


It is Kid Rock's Only God Knows Why using video from Final Fantasy VII.

Kid Rock - Only God Knows Why

Céline Dion - The Power of Love

The next video was for a friend's wedding, Céline Dion's The Power of Love using video from Final Fantasy VIII.


I remember giving it to my sister to watch, and at the very end of the video she asked, "Does that guy have a tail?"

One of the hardest videos I've ever made, because of the subject matter. It is a very emotional song, and I tried to make it a very emotional video.


It is Christina Aguilera's Beautiful song and uses The Passion of the Christ movie for the video.

Christina Aguilera - Beautiful

Notorious B.I.G. - What's Beef

This is one video I wish I could re-do. At the time, my computer was not very powerful at all, and it shows in this video. It stutters and the timing is noticeably off in several spots.


It is Notorious B.I.G.'s What's Beef song using video from Driver 2.

A few of the other videos I've made were blocked on YouTube, so they are not listed here. They are:

Led Zeppelin Black Dog using video from Resident Evil and Resident Evil 2.

Bond Explosive using video from Lara Croft: Tomb Raider
