New ‘Por La Luna’ Official Video, directed by student Oscar winner Camille Stochitch
We’re excited to announce a new official video for our song Por La Luna, which premiered on Buzzbands.LA. We had an amazing time working with director Camille Stochitch and cinematographer Ludovica Isodori. The team also included make-up artists Sarah Hall and Chris Sanchez and many friends helping with camera equipment, light reflectors, and traffic direction.
Everyone worked closely together for a few long days of playing music and walking through the streets and alleys of Venice, California. Camille had an impressive sense of timing and coordinated a full schedule of brilliant murals and hidden side-streets that we hadn’t seen before. Ludo kept track of the camera’s eye and knew exactly where to focus and what would work with the light at every given moment. Nich Musco was our tireless steadicam operator and mood lifter, Alex Berman, Claudia Di Lascia and Michele Bizzi were fantastic light managers, bubble experts, site coordinators and more. Thanks to everyone who helped us pull this project together! Read below for more info on our super Por La Luna team.
