Fear the Mustache!
MC Hammer, Ashkon Davaran and Ladia Yates were at 4th Street Studios to shoot segments of a video for Ed Lee’s mayoral campaign that was released Oct. 24. Check it out! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fbdd_Fasz0k
In the video you’ll see 4th Street Studios’ kitchen and lounge in addition to the dance sequences Portal-A Interactive shot on our white cyc. We also helped Nate Houghteling find just the right location for the outdoor dance scenes with Ashton and Ladia, right in our neighborhood.
Like many other celebrities who have shot here, MC Hammer drove directly off the street to park in our studio-access garage. Most celebrities prefer to have a low profile in public, and we’re able to offer an easy way to ensure their privacy at our studio.
Ashkon Davaran is most famous in the Bay Area for his “Don’t Stop Believing” viral video on You Tube for the 2010 Giants. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AyVdbfyvwso, also produced by Nate and Kai from Portal-A. The energy level with Ashkon, Ladia and the back up dancers was unbelievable!
4th Street Studios doesn’t endorse any candidate for mayor, but we have enjoyed having various campaign spots shot here and learning about the candidates and issues.
