LAUNCHED: Kate Boy – In your eyes

Some weeks ago I was asked to collaborate in a music video for Kate Boy. Since I totally adored their previous hit Northern Lights it was a pretty easy decision to make. And here is the final result, just now being exclusively promoted by Pitchfork!

The shoot was a real adventure. By different reasons (music video in the 21th century) I didn’t have a gaffer nor a focus puller, the setup was more or less in the hands of me and my beloved assistant Michael Wirtberg. I found myself on a fisher dolly, pulling focus and panning the camera at the same time – but I made it! But in the end, none of this would have been possible without the outstanding members of the band.
The film was shot on Red Epic and with an Ultra Prime 24mm lens.
