It’s a beautiful thing when visions come to life. Takes a village of talents and believers though. This is the first of many. Check out a few of my fav behind the scenes stills from “Hold The Phone” video set. . . Crew built a 360 rotating slide track for the cameras to follow me around on. Custom lighting on the walls with a team handling all the perfect flickers. I was in my element! Such a good time with even better people. . . Random fact...when we were storyboarding the flow of the shots before the big day, we originally planned for me to be rapping in a phone booth with the 360 track gliding around me. Turns out the booth rental fell through last minute, and just so happens that this ridiculously perfect throne was just chilling in the warehouse upon arrival. Pffft...problem solved. That’s a true freestyle right there. . . Big love to the whole crew who grinded this visual out on a sweltering hot August day in this muggy DTLA warehouse space. Huge thanks to my Aussie mates for life @samchatterjee @hellomilimeow for being absolute legends, working tirelessly to build a team, align logistics, directing and running the show start to finish. . . 📷: @samchatterjee . @electricponystudios

. هوا سرد بود، ترازو داشت . نابینا بود. وقتی رهگذران او را می دیدند و می خواستند به او پولی بدهند اصرار می کرد که روی ترازو بروند ، سپس پول را می گرفت... . . #bnw_greatshot #bnwportrait #bnw_inst #bnwphotos #bnw_photography #bnw_greatshots #bnw_captures #bnw_drama #streetphotographer #streetphotography #magnumphotos #blackandwhite #photojurnalist #photojurnalism #عکس_روز #عکس_زیبا #عکس_مفهومی #عکاس_خلاق #عکاسی_هنری #عکاسی_مفهومی #عکاسی_خیابانی #عکاسی

Sinner of the darkside, black magic😈 (when rashes turned into something else.. Free 🦂 tatoo i think 😜) . Forgiven for those who tried their very best to do harms but at the end of the day, it just waste of money, no dignity, immoral & totally lost. . Misunderstanding can be solved in many other beautiful ways... 🌾🌸🌾 . Perform evil-canival kind of things to those who really cares & loves are obnoxious. . Let's start a new day with ❤️💛💜 not hatreds.. Life is short! . 🙈See no evil, 🙉hear no evil. 🙊speak no evil! . Just a lover not a fighter. ✌️😍✌️

Day9: ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Someone asked me today of what my purpose is for doing this. Well, selfishly I can say that it’s for me, to express myself and feel good. But if I had to choose a purpose other than myself — I want people to come when hope is fading fast, to come back here, and feel the hope build back. I want people to keep their mind strong and always be on top of the world. #andysworld #andytakesovertheworld #natgeo100contest
