Video Director Behind JULIANA’s ‘I’m still Here’ Video JUSTIN CAMPOS -A queen’s return to the throne is no ordinary affair. It is something that creates that buzz that brings forth debates. It is therefore not surprising that Juliana’s new video, ‘I’m still here’, that was released a few days ago, has received a grand reception.
Juliana’s new song rides on the timeless message of resilience and persistence which she effortlessly delivered with her signature soothing voice. And such a grand plot was translated into a music video, directed by acclaimed South African video director Justin Campos.
Social media has been buzzing over scenes in Juliana’s video that resemble those from J’Lo’s #AintYoMama video.
He is a director and cinematographer who owns and runs ‘Gorilla Film’, which is a full-service media production company specialising in music videos for the biggest stars.
He has shot and directed over 500 music videos.
The name ‘Gorilla Films’ originates from the term ‘Guerilla-Filmmaking’, where innovative techniques are used to produce hi-end results with few resources. It is no doubt that the art of minimalism pulled it off in Juliana’s #ImStillHere video.
Justin Campos began in music production, where he had the pleasure of programming percussion, recording, mixing and mastering.
In 1998, he then moved to film, and started a small production company called ‘Gorilla Films’ from a little townhouse in Johannesburg, South Africa, that has become a household name (in the industry).
He was then joined by his wife Candice Lee Campos, who has taken the production value up with her amazing talent and hard work in conceptual ideas, producing, set design, and many other areas. The two are like a dynamic duo, producing work of great value and entertainment.
Justin likes to operate the camera himself, often lights the sets, overseeing the work flow. He is described as a perfectionist.
Among the videos he has produced are:
