Robby Starbuck, the director of the ‘Make It Out Of This Town’ music video took some time to answer UGS a few questions about the video shooting (with Gabe). Thanks for taking the time!
How was shooting the video?
RS: It was really great to get to work with Gabe finally. Him and I have been going back and forth for years about potentially doing a Cobra video! Eve is such a wonderful artist and so easy to direct the whole experience was really fun for everyone involved.
Did you came up with the idea for the video (school theme)?
RS: Well it’s sort of a combination of myself and Eve. She’s the ambassador this year for the Big Brothers Big Sisters organization so she wanted to do something that connects with that & bullying. I put a lot of the rest together and we collaborated throughout the process.
Funniest thing that happened at the set?
RS: The funniest thing is we shot SOOOO late into the night that I think everyone started to get a little delirious. I like to call that ‘Wacky Hour’ when you’ve just been shooting so long everyone starts to get a bit wacky. Shooting Gabe’s teacher like performance was pretty funny too!
What do you think about Gabe? You’d like to shoot with him again?
RS: I love Gabe. I’d direct a video for him or Cobra anytime. He’s a funny guy and looks pretty damn good on camera!
