Motion City Soundtrack’s “True Romance” Music Video Released!

Check out the awesome new music video that I produced with Backseat Conceptions for Deadhorse Films and Epitaph Records!  Motion City Soundtrack’s “True Romance” directed by Jesse Cain is the 2nd single off their new album “Go” which was just released! This is Backseat’s 2nd MCS music video, we teamed with Deadhorse, Jesse Cain and his collaborator Ben Fries in 2009 on the “Disappear” music video.

The video is mind-bending, it’s one 3 and 1/2 minute long shot!  It took us awhile to wrap our heads around it and we produced it! We’ll let explain:

“Y’all. We need to borrow your brains. We just watched Motion City Soundtrack’s “True Romance” video three times in a row — because we’re slow on the uptake sometimes. It’s kind of like “Inception,” a movie that took us about three viewings to even partially begin to comprehend, but with guitars and tattoos and less gravitas and ego and overacting. We don’t want to spoil the video’s twist — all we’ll say is that singer Justin Pierre’s mind is sharper than ours, as evidenced by the part in the video where he Jedi mind-tricks a bike.”

Check out the video on NOW!
