I’ve gotten a chance to direct a few local music videos through my friend Blake’s company: Back Road Productions. That’s how this one came to me. I met with the guys from Norell at Empress, sweaty after a basketball game. They told me their idea. I liked the idea of pairing the energy of the song with the story of a contemporary dancer. My favourite part of the video is that the guys agreed to film the performance section at a dance studio and all go barefoot. The mural in the background is by my neighbour Tim Rechner and it’s my second favourite part. My third favourite part is my friend Kelsey’s choreography, which she performed with relentless dedication. And of course none of it would’ve been possible without Tom’s time and talent.
Considering it was just Tom and me on this one, I’m pretty proud of what we were able to do. Hope you dig.
Until next time.
