Since February 2011, Spindrift have been releasing a series of music video collaborations with various directors, all for songs from their most recent record, ‘Classic Soundtracks Vol. 1,’ with IFC.com hosting each premiere. The final video in the series, “Round Up,” has been released.
The band’s own Sasha Vallely makes her directorial debut with this charming bit of slapstick, filmed at Pappy & Harriet’s in Pioneertown, CA. Ward Roberts, director of Dust Up, stars in the off-kilter video. Vallely commented, “Ward was perfect for the role — he made everyone laugh so much, it was a really fun shoot. Using some of the cast and crew from ‘Dust Up,’ Shannon Hourigan as cinematographer, stuntman Al Burke and director Travis Betz made everything run really smoothly and I am very happy with the results. I hope you have as much fun watching this video as we all did making it!”
