Glen Hansard video for Philander

Apr 28th 2012 | 0 COMMENTS

I directed the video for Philander from Glen Hansards lovely new album Rhythm and Repose.

The styling was based on a look from early in the last century and we wanted it to feel timeless with no obvious modern trappings, apart from the radio. With all of that in mind in an MTV Hi Definition digital world where even the dullest dramas on TV have incredibly slick crane and Steadicam shots I wanted to keep this as simple and spare as possible. So we kept most of it locked on a tripod with careful compositions and introduced movement and ‘release’ through the changing lights.

The video had its worldwide debut on NPR in April and they blogged about it here:
