Ok, I confess I got this some time ago and it was buried in the old inbox, but I finally got thru some old mail and wanted to share…

Hey Mitch,

I hope you've been well. You've featured a few of my videos in the past and I thought I'd give you an update on a project I directed that I'm really proud of. We shot the music video for The Weeks' “The House That We Grew Up In” about six months ago and it finally premiered on RollingStone.com

I'm not sure if it matches up with planet5D's agenda, but it was shot on a Canon EOS 5D Mark II and an old chinon Super8 film camera. We also used Kessler's pocket dolly for the dolly shots. We were able to do all this without permits because of the small crew associated with the DSLR.

Rockers clown, chill with friends and neighbors

From the RollingStone article

In their video for “House We Grew Up In,” rowdy, fun-loving rockers the Weeks get down for a good time in their neighborhood, clowning around in restaurants, cruising on skateboards, riding wheelchairs and hosting a block party for their friend and neighbors. Frontman Cyle Barnes triumphantly sings “They can't stop us!” as everyone dances along in high spirits. The clip also cuts to filtered shots of the group messing around town, all in good fun.

“House We Grew Up In” is on the Weeks' upcoming EP Gutter Gaunt Gangster, out September 25th on Kings of Leon's label, Serpents and Snakes.
