When directors Michael Reich and Mike Pinkney asked me to shoot a new music video for Ryan Adams' new self-titled album, I was 100% down. Especially after hearing that we’d also be working with Elvira, Mistress of the Dark. What followed was a black and white palette with shot nods to Danzig’s Mother and Nirvana’s Smells like Teen Spirit.
**Sidenote** As a negotiation to book time with Elvira (Cassandra Peterson) we agreed to also shoot a music video for her song “My two big PumPkins” for FREE. So after we finished shooting all the shots with Ryan, we struck the set and then shot another video for Elvira that you can find here. She was AMAZING to work with!
