Music is a marvellous thing. So seeing both this song and this video come together – through first live performances, sound production, mastering, filming and video pos-production – was a wonderful thing. Stressful at times, but wonderful.
I’ll openly admit it here and now: it’s fun to plan a video shoot minute by minute with shot lists and call sheets, and assistants buzzing around – and seeing it all come together. But it is nothing compared to recognising yourself and your intuitions in the semi-planned camera movements of a live music video.
