Music video premiere – starring me and my Etch a Sketch

Yes, I have spend a lot of time etching and sketching as a child. And apparently it’s just like learning to ride a bike, because before we shot the video, I didn’t touch my Etch a Sketch for almost 2 years. I have no idea how my brain works it out, but if I have an image in front of me, its fairly easy for me to draw it. Enjoy!

This track ’42 Inches’ will be featured on the EP ‘We Are Not Amused’ to be released MAY 30th.

Idea and etching by yours truly. Direction, filming and editing by the brilliant Jonas Krüger.

Check out the previous behind the scenes post from the shoot the video.

Stretching my etching and sketching skills

In between all the demo making and working, I shot a music video for an old song of mine: 42 inches. I it did together with the talented, incredibly sweet and cool Jonas Krüger, who I met when Morgensang was created back in September. It’s a creative collective of all sorts, sharing a space in Copenhagen NV at an old piano factory.

Jonas was filming, instrcuting and is also doing the editing. I was just etching and sketching for hours and hours. He will do the finishing editing in the next few days, so stay tuned for the premiere.

A quick survey the night between Saturday and Sunday made it clear that no one could tell that this hands was holding a fish. Creative suggestions such as a parsnip, tepee, rocket and a hornets’ nest made it clear that we had to redo the fish. Luckily all the other motives came out great…

Thanks to my friends for helping me with camera, equipment and light.

This image of me and my Washburn will also be in the video.. etch’ed of course.
