Thank you everyone for watching the premiere and the making of 'L.O.V.E.' music video tonight! Thank you for your kind words, comments and endless support. As any other film-making projects, this one too is a result of a great collaborative team effort. I owe it to these awesome, hardworking people for the video’s success:

Dodo aka Austin for believing in my crazy idea and gave me the responsibility and freedom to direct his first music video. Mack, his producer for the dope beats.
