Any time I have an opportunity to make a piece of film for City and Colour, I'm excited. Dallas is a Canadian icon, and his music evokes a unique emotion that really elevates any visual image. This project was different than the last two I did with him - the other ones were more traditional in terms of commissioning and production. I pitched a formal treatment, and then once awarded, we went back and forth for a while, refining the concept.With Love Come Back, the label literally emailed me and said we have some money and want you to do this video. Are you interested? They wired me the cash, and didn't ask any questions. It was an incredibly liberating situation for me. I didn't have to worry about writing a script for approval - I could just confidently go and make whatever I wanted. So, I took the cash, and went to Mississippi - a place I've spent a lot of time in, that I knew was rich with locations. I also knew an incredible dancer in New Orleans who we could build this around. And that's pretty much it. I spent 6 days scouting and assembling a crew, and then 2 days shooting. In the end, I believe we created something really powerful and really raw. We filmed from the southern tip of the Mississippi Delta in Vicksburg, MS, to the top, just south of Memphis, TN. Locations also included Clarksdale, Greenwood, Yazoo City, Alligator, and Tutwiler Mississippi.
