Time for the debut of Drew Kennedy’s breathtakingly beautiful new video for his song “Stars in California”…but first a little “inside” scoop:
This video was shot by Andrew Barrera of Earl’s “Country Boy” video fame. These two little creative buggers took off traveling west to capture the feeling of a “road song”…and everything in between…as more of an experimental piece, rather than your “normal” video. It was shot over four days and they tried to concentrate on the beauty of the West. I think they succeeded. Andrew and Drew didn’t use any story boards or shot lists not because they were trying to be artsy-fartsy, but because they didn’t know what they wanted the video to look like when they started.
Obviously Drew wasn’t expecting snow and that really was him walking on the train. Dangerous! Drew the daredevil! None of you kids out there ever play in the snow without the proper clothing! And oh yeah, don’t play with trains either.
They shot it at the Hoover Dam, Seligman, AZ, the Grand Canyon, somewhere between the GC and Flagstaff, AZ, Sedona, AZ, Jerome, AZ, Tonto National Forest, AZ, Roosevelt, AZ, Clifton, AZ, Las Cruces, NM, Valentine, TX, Marfa, TX, Marathon, TX, Sanderson, TX, and Langtry, TX.
None of those places are California.
Am I the only one that immediately thought about Britney Spears when they watched it?
