Emilie and I took a trip to Mexico City last April. On the way there we had the idea of shooting a music video for Slow Motion on my iPhone 6.
I loved the convenience of shooting with a tiny camera. Being able to edit without having to transfer footage from camera to computer allowed me to complete the video on the plane ride home, giving me by far the fastest turnaround time for any music or film project that I've ever worked on.
Another reason this was such a great project is because we didn't go to Mexico City for the purpose of shooting the video, we went there to enjoy ourselves, the music video was an afterthought that we just let happen. Because we had this approach, the video captures an authentic travel experience and not a group of staged shots. In other words, we shaped the video around our stay and not the other way around as has been the case with past projects.
Emilie makes her co-directing debut with this video. Special thanks to
Mark Powell for taking us on a photo tour of the city that produced most of these shots.
