It was an enormous honor to be asked to conceptualize, create and direct this video. I struggled a bit with concept, with building my shot list, with multiple issues on set- because in reality I had no idea what the fuck I was doing. From the beginning, I had mental movies playing and knew I wanted to recreate the images in my head, but I had no idea where to begin. With an amazing crew, some of which held my hand from day one, and AMAZING friends who believed in my mental movies from the get go- I have now directed a music video!
And none of this would have been done without one of my biggest supporters, closest friend and maybe one most amazing people I have ever met and had the honor of them liking me too! Sonj- Thank you! You're my sugar mama, You allow me to be an artist while you handle all the logistical shit I want nothing to do with, you believe in me and my talent, you push me to be better at what I do and live outside my comfort zone. You told me a couple years ago that you would get me directing and I scoffed. Well, once again- you were right, you usually are.
Thank you to Mari for walking me through my shotlist and for your amazing lighting and shooting. You, my dear are stellar! I loved collaborating with you. You made my visions become reality, while being oh so patient. You worked your ass off in less than ideal conditions at points and I thank you for being SO damn good at your job!
Me with the band and crew at out official release party! (+ a dog)
I hope you enjoy the video!!
