Eddie Island – “Honey (You Said Love)” Music Video


Audio Network reached out to Cut ‘N’ Run to help produce a music video for 2017 American Idol contestant Eddie Island. Their team created a storyboard and treatment for the music video and sent it to Cut ‘N’ Run for execution. We made a plan to shoot everything in one day with Eddie and his band while the producers at Audio Network remoted in to help direct and make suggestions all the way from the UK. 


Tackling one scene at a time, we shot the music video in the most effective manner possible to keep the production to a one-day shoot. Any mess making scenes were captured towards the end.

Two Litepanel Gemini lights were used to create color splashes throughout the music video as well as an LED fresnel to create a spotlight look. We chose our Canon C200 shooting in Cinema RAW Lite mounted to the Kessler Crane Shuttle Dolly and Cineshooter Head to achieve a seamless boomerang slider shot throughout the video. The remaining shots were completed using a handheld shoulder rig.

The post-production process involved working one-on-one with the producer from the UK and exchanging ideas and drafts of the video. The original treatment also ended up changing due to being unable to shoot certain scenes.


We sent the final render of “Honey (You Said Love)” to Audio Network to be posted on YouTube for the official public release of the song. 

Eddie Island’s music video for his hit song “Honey (You Said Love)” has been viewed thousands of times on his YouTube channel. The relationship with Eddie has grown to include doing various other works since the initial shoot.
