only 10 minutes late. before our first coffee cup,
we started to arrange the set for the
shooting of the first video,
scheduled to 5:30
recording first session, "port said".
we chose this song to start with, cause of it's
'morning prayer' vibes. we shot 5 takes, it took us some time to wake up and rise with the music.
while playing, we were watching the
port starting to wake up. jogs running,shops
opening, fishermen coming back with their lute.
getting in&out of the shots,
exectly like we imagined
anat and talya spent many nights figuring out the shooting vision for each clip (the fact they are married made it easier). they decided to shoot 'beirut' in a swirling way, using monopod to smoothen the camera movment.
"we wanted it to feel like sailing"
what happened on set realy gave this vision a boost:
one of the workers was making impossible sawing noises.
we couldn't shoot. he was willing to stop only when we offered him some mulla. and then, surprisingly, he generously offered us to shoot the clip inside his blue boat.
so the band spread out on levels, in and out of the boat,
allowing moshe to take some fucking amazing shots running through the ships, behind and around us
the jeruz boys arrived at 10. they spent the night on anat's livingrom floor in sleeping bags.
the entire house was filled with boxes: speakers,
monitors, cables, mics, folding chairs and tables, ropes, food supply, and all the gear
we needed to make this day work.
in 4 hours everything will be spread on our first set
behind the scenes
meet the crew
second session is up, "jaffa".
it was hot as hell, but the sound was great.
in this session daniel gave us higher monitor levels, so we heard each other better and the music started to happen. elik took a solo, and made all the hassel around disappear
what inspired us when planning this clip was a dagnahash video. we loved the shot of a girl in a ruuning bus, looking from the window and seeing the band playing.
in this video, on top of our land crew,
we sent tal's camera for a cruze with the local sea scouts, got a drown camera, and put ourselves as close to the water as we could
