Blue Hotel – Official Music Video directed by Miriam Bennett (Moving Studio Productions)
Kate says, “After giving ten different filmmakers free reign to create music videos for each of our songs, it felt good to dial it in and just do what we do.” I couldn’t agree more. With a helping hand from Jason Smythe, a camera and a few lights at Silver Point Studios I wanted this video to bring the focus back to what I love about the music and the performance. The band is on tour now and, quite possibly, coming to a city near you.
Check out the other videos on the The Shape The Color The Feel album as they are released.

But I moved to New York a couple of decades later…just about the time when shoots like that were becoming increasingly controlled by managers, publicists, agents and the studio P/R machine. Ideas had to be pre-approved and even then it didn’t mean you would get to do them. And three days? More like five minutes…
