The first project released by Love Song is an energetic Facebook campaign about the skate scene in Ghana. Directed by Elliott Powers, Justyna Obasi, and Bafic, Skate Nation Ghana captures the unique flavor of the West African country as seen through a crew of fearless youth, skating through life, just trying to land tricks.
“This job was one big crazy experiment,” said director Elliott Powers. “Going into the job the two keywords were authenticity and maximalism. Every potential idea discussed had to meet those requirements. Three young directors (Bafic, Justyna Obasi, and myself), two cinematographers (Deepa Keshvala and Robbie Ryan), with experienced director and Love Song Co-founder Daniel Wolfe serving as executive producer. This fresh approach to making commercials with new talent is a priority at Love Song, and judging by our first film, it feels like we’re about to shake shit up.”
