On our way to meet up with the talented Sean Ghazi for a music video shoot in the Mission District of San Francisco, we got stuck in (Mayan? Aztec? Religious? Protest? Mixture of everything?) parade traffic for 20-30 minutes. The police had the whole street shut down as a massive swarm of people engulfed our car as the procession went on.
We eventually just turned the car off, got out and started to grab b-roll shots of the "festivities". The footage is now going in to the music video!
Moral of the story: always try to be making lemonade out of lemons!
