I'm revisiting a lot of things this week (see my post on My Name is Rachel Corrie on Bitter Lemons) - but this post is primarily about the thing that killed the radio star. Moosic Vidayos. I wrote about working on some videos in this post, but this year, I've moved from low-budg to no-budg, random choreographer number 3 to lead talent, actually commissioned by the label to fan vid or faux band. It's a step up, trust me.
The most recent video I worked on is for CANT - Chris Taylor of Grizzly Bear's solo project - and was shot by fellow OU alum John Heeg & Chris Westlund. They pitched the idea to Lisa & I as a post-Black Swan take on the male gaze. Watch the video here.
From an acting standpoint, of course it was awkward kissing one of my best girlfriends and I was wary of exploiting or over-sexualizing a lesbian relationship. Thankfully Lisa is incredibly fun, we became really close working on Girl Band together, so it was very easy to keep things very sweet and natural, grounded in our genuine love and respect for one another. John edited a beautiful piece, I'm really impressed by their work and continually grateful to have the fortune of working with talented people coming out of Ohio.
The videos gotten some mention on the Terrible Records Blog (CANT's label), PreFix Mag, and on Disco Naivete. Check it out.
