Kate Clover’s EP ‘Channel Zero is out there for your listening. Here is an exclusive Director’s cut video to the track ‘Love You To Death’ along with a wee Q and A. It’s a bit punky, a bit gritty, it’s a bit doo wop! Enjoy, we love it!
1. What do you like about working with Rebecca / what does she bring to the table on a video like this?
Kate: Rebecca and I encourage one another to push our ideas as far as we can. There is no ego when we collaborate. The ideas run the show and we follow one and others inspiration. She brings her sense of storytelling and her acting experience to the table. She really knows how to show actors what translates well onto film, it’s amazing to watch her work in that aspect. I’ve learned a lot watching her direct.
2. How did you come up with the characters?
Kate: The characters reflect the personalities of each friend we casted. I’m glad everyone had a sense of humor, I don’t like to take myself too seriously in music videos and I wanted this to be playful and fun.
3. Did you develop the host character with Zumi? How did you get her involved? What inspired her role?
Kate: Zumi is a natural performer. She has a show stopping presence and we immediately thought of her once we created the character. “The Mistress” is very Tarantino inspired. Worldly, tough and in charge. All characteristics I would use to describe Zumi.
4. What’s it like seeing the original idea come to life with the finished video?
Kate: Thrilling! There’s nothing more exciting than seeing a visual representation of a song you wrote. It feels like a crazy dream come true!
