You know I like to make quirky music videos…this time we incorporated elements of classic 1950s detective film noir with an invisible super-human twist. And just in time for the cold, foggy days of autumn and next week’s All Hallow’s Eve when we all want to indulge in a little campy make believe. A whole cast of kooky 50s era gents and dames bring the video’s off the wall comic book mystery to life: an invisible detective, a femme fatale, a torch singer, a couple of mobsters and a mad scientist.
The video was filmed at the infamous Penthouse Nightclub in Vancouver and, unbelievably, in our 600 square foot apartment where we built sets for the home-made science lab and the invisible detective’s office from scratch.
As always, my director, producer and husband, Mike Southworth, was also involved in almost every step of the process. World class director of Photography Byron Kopman was brought in because of his dark sci-fi experience on TV’s ‘Supernatural’. Local actors Kendra Anderson, Ryan Smith and Gregory Berry played brilliant lead roles alongside a Vancouver music scene who’s who of cameo appearances. But possibly one of the most interesting parts of the film is it’s mixture of old film styles and approaches. We studied a lot of film noir classics and 1930s sci-fi movies and ended up doing almost all of the special effects for real, in-camera, which is how they had to do it back then.
The song’s lyrics are a reminder of how as life goes on we tend to grow more and more careful when what we really need to remember is to let go. The older I get, the more I want to re-capture that magical feeling of wild child-like fantasy. My music, art and videos do that for me – and hopefully for you guys too!
Thanks to each and every one of you who helped create this fun project!!
Enjoy the crazy ride!
Wishing y’all a splendid Autumn! Keep cozy!
