Film At 11: Field Trip To The Moon

YouTube Preview Image

The name Steve Barron might not mean anything to you, but you are certainly familiar with the director’s work. He is the man responsible for three of the 1980s’ most iconic music videos: a-ha’s “Take On Me,” Michael Jackson’s “Billie Jean” and Dire Straits’ “Money For Nothing.” as well as films such as Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Coneheads. Now he’s back behind the camera for the latest video from Field Trip To The Moon (a.k.a. singer/songwriter and actress Angela Christofilou and guitarist Dan Cross). The clip is for “YOU,” off the duo’s self-released Something Owed. Says Christofilou of the track and video, “‘YOU’ came from a relationship I was in and from a place of anxiety and panic attacks, which is what the theme of the video is sort of based around. Running away from one’s self. The sort of fight-or-flight response. We didn’t have much of a budget for the video, really. Everyone who worked on it did so as they loved the song, and Steve Barron came on board to direct it which was great. I met Steve at an audition for an acting job, we talked about music, so I later just sent him the song and asked if he would do a video for it, and he was up for it. It was filmed in two days.” We are proud to premiere “YOU” today on magnetmagazine.com. Watch it now.

Film At 11: David Myles

YouTube Preview Image

On January 26, Juno Award winner David Myles will release 10th album Real Love (Little Tiny), though it’s only the Canadian roots rocker’s second U.S. LP. Unlike 2015’s So Far (which featured stripped-down takes on a baker’s dozen of some of Myles’ previously released songs as a way to introduce him to an American audience), the 13-track Real Love is fully electric, with contributions from his touring band and R&B singers Reeny and Mahalia Smith. Myles recently filmed a video for the title track in California with director Mat Dunlap. Says Myles of the clip, “I love dancing. Always have. I remember breaking down boxes in my basement as a kid and trying to break dance to Thriller. I’ve basically been dancing ever since, but usually in the privacy of my home, ’cause I’m not particularly gifted in that domain. For this video, however, I decided it was time to go public, no matter how ridiculous it looked. We had finished shooting the cover photo of the record and had the lights set up, and we decided to just run the tune and I’d give ‘er as hard I could, in total seriousness, for the whole tune. Like the most competitive lip-synch contest I could imagine. It was exhausting and way too much fun. It terrified my manager when she saw it, but I thought it was hilarious. We can’t let something as fun as dancing be the domain of only the well-trained, right?! I hope you dig it, and may well you dance along.” We are proud to premiere the video for “Real Love” today on magnetmagazine.com. Break out your boogie shoes (today’s the 40th anniversary of the Saturday Night Fever soundtrack after all), and watch it now.

Film At 11: The Church

Today, the Church has unveiled a video for “Undersea,” from latest album Man Woman Life Death Infinity. Directed by Eden Mulholland, the three-minute clip is a collection of odd galaxy spirals, individuals of the band and dripping honey. Mulholland says of the video, “Originally conceived to be a hallucinogenic poolside scene that zooms in and out of the pixels of reality, then further inspired by the lyrics and an abstract response to each band member’s unique footage.” Check it out below.
