“After All” Music Video

I was in the video shoot for The Rosenbergs’ song, “After All.” The song is the first single from their full-length debut, Mission: You, which is set to be released February 20th on Discipline Global Mobile. I was asked by the band and the directors to be a part of the video.

The video is a tribute to videos that aired on MTV in the 80’s including those by Dire Straits, Stryper, and The Buggles. The shoot took place in the East Village of New York City. “After All” is directed by Girl Next Door, headed by Adria Petty and Anna Gabriel– two recognizable names in the entertainment industry.
