Friday, November 4, 2016 - New York City: Breaking News is a refreshing perspective on an over saturated topic we've all seen time and again this year. Local actor and artist, Charles J. Jugans III., also known as “Sweet Chuck”, finally brings an honest “spin” on current events in “Breaking News.”
Unlike other contemporary music videos, major network news, or late night satire – “Breaking News” is a real, unabashed and irreverent sketch , which happens to also be a kick ass song (the first of four singles off his forthcoming album titled, “The Adventures of…” due to release in 2017.
Sweet Chuck features super producer Dj Journey, and directly tackles fundamental philosophical, race, and gender and issues juxtaposed with facts and sources. In order to bring the song to life visually, the unlikely production duo enlisted New York based Rock and Roll photographer, Jason Sheldon and co-founder of S.C.R.D., Ravin Dave as co-directors to shoot and edit the short drama.
Breaking News actually goes deeper beyond that of a typical music video or even a short film. This video captures individual characters, who are playing the roles of those delivering the news. As a result each character comes to life in an authentic and vulnerable manner; in the roles where they are not allowed to break character when reporting the worse of news stories.
The music video represents and speaks directly to today's sharing culture, the participants of which often pass along informations and react to content without digging deeper or knowing anything greater than just headlines.
Charles J. Jugans, III. is a professional actor that plays the character of Sweet Chuck, an artist and co-founder of S.C.R.D. In the past, Charles played roles in both film and music videos including: Alanis Morissette ”Unsent” and “Lucky Days,” directed by Anglica Page, as well as been featured in “Man on the Moon,” “Finding Forrester” and many commercials. The character of Sweet Chuck is limitless, and fans are able to live vicariously through his character and adventures.
