MEET KANO: DP & MUSIC VIDEO DIRECTOR
This is Kano.
Kano, tell us more about how you got into video production.
Every since I was six years old, I always used to record myself in front of the camera.
It grew on me as I got older.
I first started off acting, but God moved me into another direction.
I really started shooting music videos just to practice in 2016.
I told myself in three years I will be far into it.
Now, I’m ready to elevate.
How would you describe your style of cinematography?
My style is very basic.
I don’t care about using video effects at times.
I believe in rawness.
I like shooting to show your true self.
Show that pain, show that gift you have deep inside.
What has been some of your favorite projects you've worked on this year?
I have plenty of favorite projects.
I enjoyed working with Brian Keith, 4500 Nuk, August Bleu, YungSpoody.
With Brian Keith, one of favorite music videos that we got to work on is, “ Down Below” we are in pre production with that.
I already edited the video inside my mind because it’s a personal song that I went through in life that made me realize reality.
With 4500 Nuk, my favorite video I did for him is, “Warzone” we have plenty more on the way.
August Bleu is the homie from Los Angeles.
We got a movie coming out with his next song.
And for Yung Spoody, my favorite video I did for him was "Long Road."
That hit me in a different way that made me want to get my relationship right with God.
Do you have anything new or upcoming we can expect to see from you?
Yes, I have a lot of personal projects coming out.
I will be shooting my real brother (Tune) aka buck nasty music videos.
I also will be traveling around from state to state shooting known artists.
