Directors Talk About Working With Lil Wayne On Set Of Commercials

Directors Talk About Working With Lil Wayne On Set Of Commercials

Complex recently chopped it up with people that have worked with Lil Wayne on set of his commercials to see what it was like working with him.

Sara Gilbert, who is the Public Relations Manager for Sovereign Brands, talked about how Weezy acted as his own director to improve the scenes while on set of the Bumbu ads and the “A Word With Wayne” series:

“It must be from his experience being a professional for all of his adult life. He can hear something and put his own spin to it instantaneously. He might hear something upstairs or down the hallway-[maybe] someone shifted their weight and they have their keys in their pocket. He’ll stop and wait for the noise to clear and then he’ll resume or we’ll take it from the top. He doesn’t miss a stride, it doesn’t throw him off his game. The fact that he self-corrects, he’s directing himself, is amazing.”

Matt Aselton, who directed Tunechi in the commercials for Samsung, spoke on how his crew were unconvinced at first if Tune would be able to act the scenes, as well as how he reminds him of an athlete:

Video Director Eif Rivera Teases A New Lil Wayne Music Video

Video Director Eif Rivera Teases A New Lil Wayne Music Video

Video director Eif Rivera uploaded the picture above on his Instagram page yesterday with the caption: “Edit mode. A little effects here and there by me with a little assistance from my guy @madmaxmordechai Final Cut 7… #WeezyFbitches”

So it looks like Lil Wayne has a new music video on the way. For anyone thinking it will be the Glory” music video, unfortunately it won’t be that one as Wayne can’t drop visuals for any songs off his Free Weezy Album and he also didn’t have the blonde dreads back when he shot it.

If you zoom in onto the bottom row of editing in Final Cut Pro on the photo, you can see the text says “Lil Wayne – The Trap“. This could possibly be the title of the upcoming Weezy video, or it could mean nothing at all!
