Easy, quick, and thoroughly enjoyable shoot with Jennifer and Kevin of Where The Embers Fall.
From a visual standpoint, I wanted to include that elegant, unusual, postmodern mixture of industrial and Victorian that is one of the trademarks of this band. Their look is extremely modern gothic and turn-of-the-20th Century; American and European. How they're able to make that work for them (and they DO, definitely) is one of the things that I find really interesting about them. They make it seem strangely effortless and natural; a beautiful collision of the past, present, and future.
But what I love most about them is their music. I certainly tried to make the visual aspects of this video a good link to the sound and feeling of this particular song. Violin alongside steely, delicate electronica? Count me in.
Everything was shot in Battle Creek, Michigan in May, 2012.
As I expected, Where The Embers Fall was a dream to work with.
The music video for "Fleeting Moments" is right HERE. It premiered online June 20th, 2012.
