“Brighter!” is the second of 4 videos expected to be released by the end of January; all in support of Cass McCombs’ 2013 record, Big Wheel and Others. The video projects the on and off screen life of the late Golden Globe winning actress Karen Black, with McCombs himself as the screen. It’s an idea that came from director Stephen Eckelberry (Black’s Widow).
“An image came to me: Cass himself becoming a screen for the projection of images of Karen — as if his memories of her were playing themselves out over his body.” said Eckelberry.
Watch McComb celebrate the life of one of his favourite actresses in the video below.
