On behalf of Jane Thang Productions, LLC, I was very excited to collaborate with Akisha Lockhart and her AllINeedIsOneMic.com crew to create her new talk show, She’s Gotta Show. In this episode AINIOM’s Akisha Lockhart interviews actor LaRoyce Hawkins. I worked as the camera operator, audio engineer, and editor. We shot this interview at the House of Blues in Chicago, which was an absolutely beautiful place to shoot. It was not hard to collect b-roll for the intro; the difficult part was fitting all of the shots that I loved in such a short segment. That is where a really decisive producer comes in handy and that is exactly who Akisha Lockhart is. It is a lot easier to edit a project when the head visionary in charge knows exactly how she wants things to look and feel. This interview was especially fun because everyone knows I love a good story and LaRoyce Hawkins really opened up and told us one. We didn’t mind breaking this interview down into three parts because he was that good and we didn’t want anyone to miss out on the gems he dropped. Cutting a lot out just to make one short video was out of the question! No Way! We are in this business to inspire! So if you are hungry for inspiration check out She’s Gotta Show right now and get fed!
Make sure you check out LaRoyce Hawkins every Wednesday on NBC’s hit drama Chicago P.D.!
Always Remember to Stay Inspired! <3 – @MsJaneThang
