Tegan Marie - "God Made Girls" - FYT Productions + Sweety High by Christian O'Grady

A few weeks ago, FYT got the opportunity to shoot a music video with 12-year-old country singer Tegan Marie. It was Tegan's debut, being her first music video, showing her fans just how serious she was about becoming a star. To continue that investment in her brand, we were contacted again by SweetyHigh.com to find a location for Tegan's second video for RaeLynn's "God Made Girls."  After a full day of location scouting, we found the lovely Camp Cavell on the east coast of Michigan along Lake Huron. It was an awesome location featuring a long coastline, abundant trees, a wrap-around porch and much more. Our contact Jill was very welcoming and even offered for us to come back if we ever need a location again, thanks Jill! 

This time around it was important to bring out more of Tegan's attitude with high energy and movement. Our coaching gave Tegan the direction she needed on camera to deliver a more engaging performance. She even snuck a wink in there! ;)

One of the core principles of FYT is teamwork. Tegan Marie, SweetyHigh.com and FYT came together to put out a compelling product. While Tegan is off recording an original Christmas track in Chicago, we'll be brainstorming ideas for her next music video back in Michigan...stay tuned!

Tegan Marie - Sweety High - FYT Productions by Christian O'Grady

FYT got the opportunity to shoot a music video with 12-year-old up and coming country sensation Tegan Marie...on her birthday! Tegan was born in Detroit in 2003 and started playing guitar when she only 6-years-old. A couple years later she was writing music at age 8 and playing national stages by age 11.

Tegan has a genuine presence about her that comes through in her vocals. She's natural, fun and always on allowing her to work hard to achieve her dreams.

We were contacted by a production company based out of Los Angeles by the name of Sweety High, who make content for the tween and teen market. Tegan initially reached out to Sweety High by sharing her homemade videos on their site. Our contact at the company told us about Tegan and the incredible digital presence she had been creating for herself. The next step...producing a music video. It was time to show the world what Tegan was made of.

 

We started the shoot at 8 am on a chilly October morning in Metamora, Michigan. Our good friend and fellow photographer Dan Lippitt owns at 10-acre farm with unlimited shooting potential. FYT loved getting to work with Tegan and the team to create the video for "Mama's Song," which has reached over 100,00 views!

A week later we're shooting Tegan's second music video for "God Made Girls" by RaeLynn. Stay tuned!
