I don't know about you, but my favorite Disney ladies have always been the sassiest ones. And of course, the quickest thing to bring out a Disney lady's sass is a creepy dude who can't take a hint. That's why, when I heard the weirdly catchy girl power anthem from the TV show "Victorious," I knew I had to transform it into a Disney song.
I actually wrote this parody of "Take a Hint" a long time ago, but wasn't sure if I had the resources to produce it the way I wanted. Last month, I finally put all the pieces together and filmed! I invited the wildly talented Mary Kate Wiles to come join us from LA, and gathered some other talented friends for a whirlwind filming weekend.
The weekend itself was full of pitfalls — costume disasters, a location falling through, and an actor bailing at 1:00am on the first shoot day, among other issues — but it ultimately ended up being a pretty laid back weekend, and I had a lot of fun getting to hang out with Mary Kate again (it had been a while since our last music video!)
Anyway, it's finally here! I hope you enjoy the video, and make sure to share it if you liked it!
the star-studded cast
I was so lucky to work with each and every one of these badasses! Check out the credits at the end of the video for a more complete listing, but here are some of the key players:
- Mary Kate Wiles, Laura of Jessolaurus Rex, and Cherry Bombshell Cosplay as my fellow leading ladies!
- Jesse of Jessolaurus Rex, Karl "Captain K" Brevik, Aindreas Dounyng, and my very own fiancé, Josh, as the creepers!
- Mandi of Ratio Photography did all of our cinematography!
