NEW MUSIC VIDEO: “Crocodile” by BB Brunes’ Adrien Gallo ft. Alex Noiret
If you love retro things, puppies and underwater shots, check out “Crocodile”, a new music video by BB Brunes’ Adrien Gallo. I was so excited when I met with director Alex Sanchez and found out about potentially working on this project. Why? For multiple reasons; 1. My French grandparents would finally be able to see some of my work- and on T.V.! It’s hard to have my grandparents understand what it is that I actually do because they don’t have internet, and unless it’s Vogue Italia or a huge magazine, the little ‘Tabac’ down the road won’t cut it. However, they always watch T.V.! So this would be perfect. 2. During my slightly younger teen years, okay- maybe only, like, three years ago, my dad and I used to jam to “Dis-moi” by BB Brunes. It’s a memory that I hold close to my heart.
So…being a part of this video was sort of like my teen fantasy becoming a reality. Supercool.
I LOVE BEING ON SET! Absolutely love it. I think when you love people as much as I do, having a crew of about 30 people is like waking up having just dreamt of bathing in chocolate or something.
It’s fun and joyful. Especially when the people you’re working with are as fun as they were on this job. And because the team was almost entirely French, I had the chance to speak French for two whole days- which doesn’t happen too often in LA.
BEHIND THE SCENES OF ADRIEN GALLO’S “CROCODILE”
This house was insane! A retro-mod style house with secret compartments, an interior greenhouse jungle and an infinity pool.
If you ever wondered how driving scenes are filmed in movies, this is how! The car is strapped down to a wheelbarrow-like truck. On that truck are the cameras put into place facing toward the car. Because of this, the car and cameras are moving as one & only the truck is actually driving.
THIS WAS THE COOLEST MOMENT
Adrien and I were in this beautiful vintage baby blue car, “driving” down Sunset Blvd. Police cars were in front and behind us, blocking out the roads for us to pass (just like they do for Presidents). It was in that moment that I kept repeating to myself “Alex, you are so blessed. Remember this. Please remember this moment. You are the luckiest girl”. “Crocodile” was softly playing, the palm trees were dancing, the sun was coming down, and everyone thought we were rockstars. To be fair if I’d been driving down Sunset and had seen something like that being filmed, I surely would have thought we were rockstars too. It was a really surreal moment, and in it, I realized how grateful I am for being a model. It’s not the easiest job, but it does have its perks and the main perk is that you never know what the next day will bring. Anything can happen.
Literally, anything. You just never know.
