Prancing to the jams of Brian James

Classy Deer Edricdale Silla had the opportunity to direct and edit “Freedom Summer”, a music video for hip-hop artist Brian James.  The album, also titled Freedom Summer, centers around the 1964 campaign that attempted to register as many African American voters as possible in Mississippi during a time when blacks were excluded from voting.  The album is currently available for purchase now on itunes.

As a Soul Vintage artist, Brian James is inspired by real life issues and tries to incorporate them into his lyrics.  The video is comprised of footage Brian’s friends shot mixed in with a few shots in the studio.  So turn up those speakers and get ready to bob your antlers to these astounding beats!
