All the waves crash over me
I was lost but I was free
All the while
- The Pines
The visuals above offer an early glimpse into one of our latest motion collaborations. We're stoked to be partnering with The Pines, producing the official video for All The While, a track from their latest album Dark So Gold.
Discussions began with The Pines while they were touring the east coast this past spring. When we first made contact they were actually in New York City opening for Mason Jennings. The Pines are described by RollingStone senior writer David Fricke as,"quietly gripping" stark-country.
All The While and it's dreamlike narration felt like a logical track to accompany the storyline and visuals we captured along the shores of Lake Superior earlier this spring. With insightful suggestions from The Pines' frontmen Benson Ramsey and David Huckfelt, we are quickly approaching final picture lock with color grading to follow in the very near future.
Keeping true to all of our projects, this has been a very collaborative piece. Eric Schleicher FilmerKid has been at the helm as our editor; tailoring the visuals with the pacing of the song. Eric collaborated closely both at the project inception as well as shooting as our second camera on our day of production. Tony Franklin and T.C. Worley of Royal Antler were close partners in story development from the early stages as well as offering production support, and camera work the day of our shoot. John Fontana captured location audio as well as sourced additional clothing and accessories from the men's boutique Martin Patrick 3 MP3.
There were many layers of partnership with creatives and businesses. This collaboration always proves to be fruitful and rewarding on many levels, often inspiring additional project ideas and future collaboration.
Check in with us soon for the launch of the music video "All The While," by The Pines. For now take a moment to enjoy a few still images that offer a little hint of what's to come...
