After seeing "The Assasination of Jesse James" Zurich-based rapper Big Zis was riding back home from the cinema on the tram, when suddenly the melody for this track came into her mind. She hummed it into her mobile phone and later on showed it to her producer Marton Di Katz, who created the music you are hearing.
For me and cameraman Tobias Dengler "Zessi" was the first time that we could not only find our way working in the western genre, but also try out the Canon EOS 5D MK II. Being obsessed with the Jesse James movie as well, we had a fun time using Roger Deakins' landmark images as an inspiration, especially since we had the chance to work with a shift and tilt lens along with the Canon camera. The piece was shot in march 2009 on an alp in Val Colla, Ticino, Switzerland.
Thanks for watching....
