1. State your name gangster…
Travis Davis aka Trav dav an all-around regular guy- who is cooler than most people! I’m the co-owner of Mirrorlove Productions LLC along with my business partner L.C.
a. What is MirrorLove Productions?
b. What services does your company provide?
c. What are some things people might have seen that you worked on?

Mirrorlove Productions is an up and coming video/editing company residing in Columbus,Ohio . We will film weddings, fashion shows, kid’s birthday parties, commercials, video promotions, and trailers. You may have seen a commercial that we created in Columbus, Oh. We created a commercial for a nightclub promoting "Plies" and also a commercial for a fashion clothing store here in the city called "Step N Style". You may have also seen our work on blogs site of artist that have came to the city.

3. How did you get into the video-producing field? Did you receive special training in this field?
My business partner L.C. actually went to College at Columbia College in Chicago for film/video productions and then finished school out in L.A. When she came back to Columbus we went out and brought equipment and she took what she learned at school, along with showing me how to work a camera, and we went from there.

4. I tell you that I want to get into producing videos, editing etc, what’s the first thing you tell me to go out and get and why?
I would say go out and get some books and read up on what your trying to do. I know a lot of people that might have the money to get the equipment but don’t have the knowledge to work it. Knowledge is power!

5. I saw on your blog that you are also an emcee, is this something that you’re actively pursuing or is it more of a hobby?
Being a emcee has always been a dream of mine. I’m a true blue fan of hip-hop and the entire culture! I love to make music, rap, and to perform! It's more than a hobby- it's life to me and I do this for the love of the culture, not for money! I rap for the love- Mirrorlove gets the money!
6. What are some of your side hustles?
Nowadays you need 10 different hustles fro every four seasons. I work 9-5 and I do promotions and I Write music for people and anything else I can do in my time.

7. What is the best music video of 2009 so far and why?
My favorite video of 2009 so far is “welcome to heartbreak” by Kanye Westfeaturing Kid Cudi. Directed by Nabil. I love the record and the visual for it is crazy! The effects he uses and the way he manipulates color is funky and wild!

8. What aspect of the music industry are you noticing that’s feeling the effects of this recession the hardest?
Wow…I would say record sales are truly effected by the recession. Albums are not selling so much (even with hype). I think that makes a artist really work on there show game though. Video budgets are down also, but that does not mean you have to settle-It just means you have to be more creative and open up your mind and think outside the box.

9. What sets MirrorLove Productions apart from other film editing/production companies?
There is nothing new under the sun but Mirrorlove will always bring a creative and unique idea to the table! We will never be a cookie cutter.! We stand by reflecting the love people have for each other, their talents, or just their life period! Everyone has a story to tell and regardless if that's through a music video, promoting your career or talent, sharing a moment amongst loved ones, getting married...we are willing to capture that moment for you to have and to share with the world! We are about celebrating what defines love in your life that's what makes us different!

10. What can people expect from you and MirrorLove productions in the upcoming months?
We will be shooting a couple videos in the next few months with artist around our city and more commercials with stores and try are best to put on for our city.

Thank you to Miss Shay and the B-side for all your love and support! I love your blog and keep up the great work
