The Official Music Video – This Christmas Time

Can’t get over how excited I am about this, so I’m reblogging it 🙂 ( Is that even a word haha ).

Ok, I really just couldn’t wait, so here it is!!! This Christmas Time!

As I mentioned previously, this experience was one of my most fun to date and it was definitely because of all the great people that were involved. A special thanks to all my cast and crew and all of the amazing businesses that either sponsored, donated or gave of their products and time. To get here has truly been a miracle, and in the midst of so many challenges for me in my journey as an artist, this moment is truly a great celebration that I will not soon forget. The hope that is in my heart is beyond what I’ve ever known. Enjoy the song, listen and if you like, share share share! Happy Early Christmas everyone!

Big Thanks To:

Music Video Preview: This Christmas Time

So I can’t contain the excitement of how incredible the making of the video for “This Christmas Time” was. This was my FIRST official music video and I have to say that I had an incredible experience. It’s one thing to make a video, but it’s another to make it with your friends, your family and such an amazing team. The shoot was a lot of work, but so much fun. I am still in awe of how this whole project came together, starting right from the production with my talented friend Colin Janz, to radio promotion with my incredible radio teams, to yesterday where it all came together for the filming of the final video. I want to honour everyone properly in a post coming soon, but I do want to say a special thanks my director/videographer Thomas Wong who literally worked round the clock to get this all done, to all my cast and crew, the businesses that gave us such incredible food, candy and clothes to work with, and a HUGE thank you goes out to my good friend Daniel Ingram for letting us film in his amazing Gastown loft apartment. I was so incredibly blessed to have my whole family film with me, and even my mom in law and my niece Jaelyn flew out to see us, so we brought them in on the fun too. This project is something else, and I’m just enjoying and celebrating every single moment. Check out the preview and stay tuned for more. I love hearing your comments, messages and posts. They are so encouraging! If you’d like to stay tuned, you can check out the FB and twitter pages too – http://www.facebook.com/marikaonline, and twitter at @marikaonline
