“Shadowboxer” Video

Shadowboxer: Courtesy of Fiona Apple

Director: Browne Andrews
Starring: Jessy Cain
Videography/Edit: Maceo III

I have just started the practice of shooting videos with my photo shoots to add more dimension to the experience. This is the first one I took the time to edit a little. The theme of this section of the shoot is: a significant other, Jessy, is waiting on her beau to arrive to an anniversary surprise. For the video, we wanted to highlight that he is running late as usual and she battles with boredom, and trying to stay excited about his  arrival before finally giving in to  the temptation of  wine, and dessert all by herself.

Commentary:

This video was shot in one take while the song was playing along. In post, I chopped it up to highlight some of the points that I felt conveyed the story a bit more clearly. Checking the watch and taking sips of wine were very clear indicators of the amount of time she had been waiting and I also wanted to give the impression that alot more time had elapsed, which is why the video drags on after the song has ended.

Browne was so instrumental in making this happen. He provided the concept, storyboard, and direction. Jessy is a wonderful model and this was made better only by the chemistry Browne was able to create in the room. Each of us contributed to the final product. Some of the still images can be found below, I experimented with a few different treatments.

I hope you enjoy them.
