The making of the 3 A.M. Ritual video


There were two dates scheduled in September, 2013, to film the video for 3 A.M. Ritual. The first shoot was the filming of Abida Blaze belly dancing to the music in a wooded area located in a suburb north of Detroit. The woods were infested with mosquitos and the video shoot ended up getting rained out before finishing. But that was no issue since Abida's first performance was flawless, despite the rain and mosquitos, and was the dance footage used in the video.

The second date for filming was for the ritual in the video which Abida also did in one take. And yes, it really was performed under the full harvest moon.
