Music video I shot in 1999, for a band I was playing in at the time. Shot on a borrowed Hi-8 and a $99 Casio digital still camera, and fashioned by processing that footage heavily and sprinkling in some stock footage. Has somehow survived a number of disastrous events including the theft of the laptop it was being edited on and the razing of my house.
Featuring Jeremy Bloch (creative mastermind behind WATCHMAKER, coiner of song titles likely to get me banned from Vimeo) and Sarah O, who put up with all manner of photographic torture for this.
I guess it's technically NSFW, since if you look closely there's a bit of nudity. There's also a couple of layering issues that I would fix if I could find the source files. Sorry.
"Call Them Brothers" was written by Jack Dishel (of Only Son) & Regina Spektor and appears on Only Son's second album, "Searchlight".
The video was directed and photographed by James Holland using Super 8mm film. Additional archival footage was shot by family friend Howard Zuckerman.
Regina and Jack (of Only Son) liked the song so much they recorded a new version of the song (its brother!) with producer Mike Elizondo. It will appear on the digital deluxe edition of Regina's new album "What We Saw From The Cheap Seats" (available now on iTunes). Get it at: http://smarturl.it/whatwesawdeluxe
