When commissioner Dilly Gent sent me two songs from Scissor Sister to pitch on, she said she needed the same director to shoot both videos, at the same time. Which is kind of insane, but that was the only way, so that’s what we did.

The most intense day was at the studio, where we had to shoot both the goo scenes for Only the Horses video and all the green screen silliness of Baby Come Home.At least lots of dorking around happened, lots of laughs, so we made it through the day with all the material we needed.

PRODUCTION NOTES

Feel free to watch this behind the scenes nicely put together by Matt Ross @ Lolafilm.

For this video I didn’t prepare a traditional storyboard, but made more of an animatic, with visual references to each vignette, set to the music.

Babydaddy and Ana Matronic try on suits.

Ana Matronic as a nun, visibly enjoying the hell out of it.

Babydaddy, sailor.

Luca Zamoc, who was in charge of all the overall look and design of the video, applying some last minute fake tattoo on Del Marquis’ arm.

More Ana Matronic, because you really can’t get enough of her.
