JAYO STUDIOS is a creative studio based in Los Angeles producing cutting edge films, music videos and commercials.
released on halloween, this is my ingmar bergman inspired music video for mondre’s solo album called “they say i struggle rap”. i borrowed ideas for visuals from the bergman film “hour of the wolf” (1968) and persona (1966).
this music video was shot in one day in san francisco and san mateo by me and just an assistant. i shot on a canon 1dx with a set of rokinon cine lenses. bc the shoot was rescheduled, the rental house was out of most lenses. although not my first choice, the rokinons did their job.
if you have any question’s about the making of this video, hit me up here!

While in Hawaii I caught up with Australian fashion photographer Mel Tjoeng and documented one of her many photo shoots on her visit. Mel takes the most beautifully composed candid shots with a vintage flair. Visit Mel’s blog to see some of the stills she took meltjoeng.com/?p=2630. Enjoy!
