Karamanti Releases the Official Video for "Don’t Give Up"
Karamanti just released the official video for her single “Don’t Give Up,” recorded for Rhome Records. “Don’t Give Up” was voiced around September, 2015 on the Missing Piece Riddim which also featured Khago, Teflon and others.
Scenes for the video were shot in Ontario, Canada and Kingston, Jamaica.
STORY BEHIND THE VIDEO
Wow! It feels like I have been working on this video forever, even though the visuals may not indicate that, lol. I actually started working on the video last year when I visited my sister in Brampton (Ontario). The idea was to go around the city of Toronto and find people who would want to tell their story on camera. Unfortunately, I got distracted preparing for a tour I had, so that did not materialize. I did manage to capture shots of my little niece (the visual artist in the third verse) and my nephew (the little boy holding up the sign) while I was there.
When I got back to Jamaica I decided to use the same concept I had in mind while in Toronto. I did not want to crowd the video so I selected just a few people, sat in front of them with the camera and ask them to tell there story. I have tons and tons of clips of persons talking about their dreams and not giving up. I am really going to try to find the time to put them all together in a mini documentary one day (soon, I hope).
The message I wanted to convey in this video is that you cannot fail and/or loose as long as you are still trying. So whatever it is you desire in life, keep going after it. Failure only occurs when you decide to give up, so don't give!
