In a few brief days off from touring with the smalls in October 2014, we shot and edited this music video for Corb Lund, CMT, New West, and RGK Entertainment. With it’s Christmas and snowy themes, the biggest challenge was creating a cold winter atmosphere in October– 6 weeks prior to its December debut. The deconstructed Christmas TV Special I think worked out well as an anchor concept— de-glamourizing the country star persona; and our lonely rancher vignette really hammered home the required melancholy. Add horses, my kids celebrating Christmas, and voila.
Big thanks to the Bews family, SAIT, Crowsnest Films, Nine40, Sean Smith, Thom Dudley, Aaron Bernakavitch, Turko, Jayna, Libertee, and all my helpful crew and practicum students.
