Emily Kai Bock Talks Arcade Fire Music Video

Emily Kai Bock talks to The Creators Project about her narrative, 8-minute music video for Arcade Fire's "Afterlife."

She says, "We shot on 65mm, using this rare camera of which there are only three left in the world. I shouldn't be saying this, but I was carrying it through a rock quarry and dragging it through sand while thinking 'this camera literally shot The Dark Knight, this camera shot 2001: A Space Odyssey.' It’s from the 70s and looks like a NASA device. It shoots the highest resolution. If you want to shoot a big action sequence you use a 65mm. It helped me get that epicness I thought the song required."
