Enrique Iglesias Music Video Release! :D

Finally!! This is the day I've been waiting for since last August; for Enrique Iglesias's music video "No Me Digas Que No" to be released on YouTube! Now what's the big deal? I'M in the video! Back in August, I had submitted to playing as a background partyer in Iglesias's video and they had cast me the next day. In between the 12+ hours of shooting, I had a great time, made friends with the background cast (Rubbal and Gaya, left), and shook hands with Enrique, himself. Not only was this an opportunity of going behind-the-scenes and witnessing the magic of making the music video, but I was able to observe the different camera equipment used to film scenes (which is great for my future aspirations to becoming a film director). Everything was bulky and advanced-looking where it was quite different from what I was used to where my digital camera would be my only piece of shooting equipment. However, I'm not so sure that I want to do anymore background work since the pay is minimal for an entire day's worth of shooting. This was an unforgettable experience that I will always look back to in years to come. After waiting for nearly four months, this keepsake timepiece has finally aired, and I've spread the word to both my family and friends who've been anticipating for this day to come too. Well, I've attached the video link to this post, so go ahead and check out Mr. Hottie Tamale's newest video!
If you want to play the "Where's Cienna?" game, try spotting me in the background. Hint: Check closely at 3:19 and 3:40. :P


  1. First off, I played the 'Where's Cienna' game and was so happy to see you in the video!!! How exciting! :)
    Being a man of the arts (music specifically) and interested in possibly getting into maybe background work, of even Voice-Acting, this post was really interesting to me and it made my mind at ease, realizing that it's not IMPOSSIBLE to get into movies, you've just gotta snag the opportunities that are out there. This was really cool and I hope to find you in more backgrounds of movies, or commercials and hope to attend something directed by you in the future. :D

  2. LOL! Thanks Jake! It is very possible to be involved in background work, anyone can do it; the key factors are: headshots, and an online account set up with LA Casting. Once you've got those two rolling, then you're in the game. If you've got any more questions about the entertainment industry, feel free to ask me through blog or in class! :]
