Eric Wareheim Creates Surreal Comedy and Slow-Motion Beauty for Beach House Music Video
Comedic director Eric Wareheim combines a dreamy song from Beach House with a surreal concept to create a humorous music video that is reminiscent of Napoleon Dynamite. Watch as Ray Wise plays a coach singing out his pep talk on the field as cheerleaders, baton twirlers and more perform behind him in beautiful slow-motion.
Wareheim tells Fast Company's Co.Create, "[Lead singer] Victoria [Legrand] had a couple of simple ideas. She was like, 'I really like Ray Wise, I like the idea of it happening during a half-time show.' She had a vision of a horse. I told her I usually don’t take any creative notes at all but the images were so powerful that I wrote a treatment around that. Everything is skewed to this other dimension that I like to live in. It’s very bright with interesting colors, and I used the same costume designers that I worked with on my last movie.”
