For those of you that don't know, we just released the video for our latest single "I Should Have". This shoot was one of the most fun, messy, and terrifying experiences we've ever had, and we recently thought, why keep those moments to ourselves? So here we are, writing this blog to share with you some of what happened behind the scenes.
This was the 2nd video in a row where we worked with our buds Jeromy Barber and James Templeton of Dinolion. These dudes do amazing work and, after a great experience shooting the video for "Lost Love", we were thrilled to have the opportunity to work with them again. Dinolion hired on the incredibly talented Jessica Collado and Aveda Adara to co-star in the video, as well as provide all choreography and makeup work. It's a great feeling getting to work with so many multi-talented and creative people on a project.
As you see in the video, our clean faces don't last long as our image quickly changes thanks to the help of Aveda.
While we're getting all made up with the help of Aveda, Jessica is sharing her beautiful choreography that can be seen all throughout the video. All dancing scenes were filmed at Match.
If you were wondering where the terrifying part comes in, well...that comes with having paint poured on our heads and with Josh being submerged in a baby pool full of paint. I can tell you that there is no feeling like watching your friend and band mate running out of air while his head is submerged, then coming up choking and gasping for air after having swallowed paint. It was our intention for us each to be submerged but after Josh volunteered to go first and nearly drowned, we were all a little shaken up. We found that we were actually able to use some of that footage though, as you'll see below, so Josh risking his life didn't completely go to waste!
Would you think that a baby pool full of paint is pretty heavy? We didn't think it would be. After Josh's near death experience, we attempted to clean up...and ended up making things much worse...
So there you have it! Some insight into the work that went into the "I Should Have" video. Hope you enjoyed!
