Winter Park, Fla. (PRWEB) October 20, 2006
Full Sail Real World Education Instructor, Carl Verna, recently shot a music video with pop artist, Sisqo, in the downtown Orlando area. Full Sail Instructor, Carl Verna, served as Director, and several Full Sail students and graduates worked in production.
Sisqo began his career at an early age when he co-founded the group, Dru Hill in 1995. They quickly gained fame with their R&B hit “Tell Me.” In 2000, Sisqo debuted his solo album, “Unleash The Dragon.” The album’s second single, the “Thong Song,” was a runaway hit and made it to number three on the Billboard charts. Its follow up, “Incomplete,” made it to number one. In 2001, Sisqo released his second solo album, which went platinum, and he also branched out into television.
Sisqo has since finished recording his third solo album, “The Last Dragon,” which will be released in November 2006. He came to Orlando to work with Full Sail and shoot his video throughout the downtown area, and he also spent time on the Full Sail Winter Park campus.
“I greatly enjoyed working with Sisqo and to have Full Sail students and graduates be involved in this major mainstream project,” said Verna. “Full Sail takes every opportunity to expose our students to artists and celebrities currently in the industry as a way to bring our real world education even closer to home, and to familiarize them with what they’ll be experiencing once they graduate.”
