A Music Video in the Making
Emilee Booher for the Willamette Weekly recently got in touch with Harlowe & The Great North Woods to film a music video for Live Reel, a new addition to the Local Cut Music Blog. I’ve been sitting on these photos for a while, eagerly anticipating the video release. Now I can finally share with you some of the behind-the-scenes action from our evening together.
The video was set inside the Ranger Station, a hand-crafted cabin made from reclaimed materials that sits in an undisclosed North Portland location. I was actually blindfolded when we drove there (not really, but if I told you anymore they’ll have to kill me). Had I known it was going to be such a feast for the eyes I would’ve brought all of the cameras, but I think I managed to capture some decent moments for posterity with what I had.
Being invited to hang out during this filming was such a treat. I had a front row seat to what felt like my own private concert, and the gracious owners of the Ranger Station provided us with an endless supply of cinnamon-orange spiced iced coffee. Harlowe performed 9 takes of their fan favorite, “Roses,” and I didn’t get sick of it for even a second. I think that says a lot about this band, and this song. It’s one I could listen to on repeat for an entire week, and still want more.
You can watch the final video by heading over to the Local Cut. Thanks to Emilee and Michael for lending their talents, as well as the owners of the Ranger Station for their beautiful space.
