Here, I’m tucking one of my favorite humans in to bed. This shot of Neko Case, emerging from deep sleep, is one of my favorites in the trailer. She’d been intensely busy in months leading up to our shoot, it was nice to let her drift off while I reset her limbs and locks for each take.
A few months previous, Neko sent a dozen fresh songs and told me to pick one to use as enticement for her long-awaited new album. The trailer was released online June 7, 2013, viewed over 50,000 times during the first 24 hours, and aggregated by Billboard, Spin, Pitchfork, CMJ and numerous others.
Thrilling for my team after pulling 20-hour days in Vermont, buying two-for-one fireworks on sale, bringing crew and gear in from New York City, and hoping for good weather. Happy times.
Neko Case is with Anti- Records.
