Here’s to the ones who dream in LA LA LAND MEDLEY, a new music video, starring YouTube stars Sam Tsui and Megan Nicole that was shot in virtual reality to pay homage to the Oscar-nominated film as part of YouTube Space LA programming that brings together the most creative people in the world to learn, connect and create cutting edge content.
Watch as a young valet (Sam Tsui) and waitress (Megan Nicole) sing and dance their way through some of LA’s iconic neighborhoods, streets and parks as they ”climb these hills, reaching for the heights” until they stumble “on a view that’s tailor made for two” at a beautiful pier overlooking the ocean at sunset.
Directed by Untold Tales, Randy Redroad and Gilbert Salas, and produced by Two Bit Circus VR, LA LA LAND MEDLEY launches exclusively on Sam Tsui’s YouTube channel today, February 9, and was
shot entirely in VR using Google’s Jump cameras for the YouTube VR app, available on Daydream View, Google’s VR headset. The video can also be easily viewed on Google Cardboard and a 360-degree version is available for mobile and desktop viewing on YouTube, so anyone can check it out.
The music video was shot over two days in Los Angeles with music arrangement by Sam Tsui and performed by Sam Tsui and Megan Nicole. Dance sequences were choreographed by Jillian Meyers and Michael Riccio.
