Katy Goodman and Todd Wisenbaker went for the 1960s country variety
show look on this one, though it’s doubtful Dolly Parton and Porter Wagoner
ever got this weird.
“We filmed it at a warehouse in downtown L.A. in August, and it was hot -
- like, over 100 degree hot,” Goodman tells Billboard. “We had to dry our
faces with towels between every shot because we were so sweaty. The
concept was developed by [director] Jason Lester. It grew from a straight up
‘60s Buck Owens vibe video into a monster mash" (wait for the monsters and
aliens to arrive).
Jason Lester is a filmmaker & photographer from Los Angeles, CA.
Jason's work has been featured in The New York Times, Billboard, Dazed &
Confused, V Magazine, Pitchfork, Rookie Mag, Under The Radar, DIY Mag,
Clash Music, The Fader, & Stereogum, amongst others.
He is currently in post-production on a feature-length adaptation of Tao Lin's
critically acclaimed novel Taipei.
