Bon Jovi

There’s always one experience that stays with you from your early years. For me, it was working on one of Bon Jovi’s first music videos, “She Don’t Love Me.” I scouted locations, helped with casting, arranged permits, hired a pack of film school friends to be production assistants and, most important, was responsible for making sure the band got to the shoot. Filming in 35mm with a huge crew, we looked like a circus caravan. We were shut down by torrential rain at the first location, and accosted by 400 screaming fans at the second location. One of the actresses froze from stage fright so Director Martin Kahan rewrote the script on the spot. Bon Jovi was tireless. After three days of round-the-clock shooting, we had a super video in the can.
