For the lyric video for “Junkyard” I spent the day shooting all of the background plates at a school bus salvage yard up in Habersham, Georgia. I have wanted to shoot something there for several years, and after getting in touch with the owners, we were granted permission. The Movi M5 allowed me to get most of the footage I needed. The rest I shot handheld in a twitchy fashion to try add to the mood. This video took a LOT of match-moving, and a due to how shaky some of the handheld footage was… it took a LOT of animation by hand.
I am very proud how this video turned out. I think it matches the tone of the song and does a great job representing it!
