A rising R&B music star will be promoting his latest music video in Lincoln after it was filmed in the city.
Lewis ‘LP’ Planter’s music video was filmed at nightclub Christopher’s and outside the Usher Gallery in February.
It was produced by modelling agency Events23 as well as Twist3d and was directed by University of Lincoln graduate Christian Moles.
The video is for Planter’s latest song Name and Number, which was originally released in August 2010 but it is being re-released in conjunction with the video, and is said to have a 1950s feel.
The managing director of Events23 Paul Mutagejja said working on the video was good fun: “It was a really enjoyable shoot for everybody involved who had a lot of fun sourcing 1950s costumes and props to make the video look as authentic as possible. It’s also good promotion for the city.”
The singer, Planter, grew up in Jamaica and is now studying sound engineering at Birmingham City University.
He really enjoyed making the video and said: “I am over the moon at the production quality and professionalism of the project and I would relish the opportunity to work with the team again.”
The music video took four days to film and then spent two months in post-production editing the video.
Paul Sinclair from Twist3d believes the video will showcase Lincoln’s creativity: “Lincoln is developing nicely as a creative hub in the region and this project helped to bring a lot of talented individuals together.”
The video for Name and Number will be premiered at The Tower Bar May 21 at 8pm with Planter and all of the cast and crew.
