Due to the COVID19 quarantine, we didn’t have the option of filming a traditional music performance video. I’ve always been fascinated by iconic movie title sequences, especially from the 1960s and 70s – artists like Saul Bass, Pablo Ferro, Sandy Dvore. Films like Charade, Woman of Straw, Anatomy of a Murder, Gidget, It’s a Mad Mad World – and later films like Catch Me If You Can. So I decided to put together a lyric video that paid homage to that style. I had never used After Effects before, so the whole thing was done on the fly, a total DIY “learn as you go” experience. I hope you dig it.” – Joe Castro
