BomBom – Macklemore & Ryan Lewis (Feat. The Teaching) (Contest Entry) from John Akin on Vimeo.

Contest entry to Macklemore & Ryan Lewis!
This track was an emotional roller coaster, and I wanted to accentuate every part. Shot over the course of 13 days, before & after work, including weekends! This is the greatest video I’ve ever had the opportunity to develop! This is my first short where I had the ability to create the entire story, no holding back, and without dialog! Really hope to see Macklemore at one of our states largest music festivals!
