Fleet Foxes Post I Am All That I Need / Arroyo Seco / Thumbprint Scar Short Film

Friday, 07 September 2018 Written by Huw Baines

Fleet Foxes have shared a new short film accompanying I Am All That I Need / Arroyo Seco / Thumbprint Scar, the opening song on their recent ‘Crack-Up’ album.

Handled by director Sean Pecknold, the older brother of bandleader Robin and a regular collaborator, it was shot on 35mm film in the California desert and combines the sweeping landscape with a surreal central image.

Discussing the video with WeTransfer, who commissioned it as part of their WePresent series, Sean said:

It was a four day shoot. One day at a house in Palm Springs. One day in Lone Pine, off the 395, where they used to shoot a lot of Westerns. I had seen this road, these rocks, called the Alabama Hills at a place called Diablo Lake. We shot in a studio for 2 days too, where Adi and Aaron Wiley recreated the house and made this really long hallway. It felt like a full-on production.

The box looks CG. But it’s not. It’s all in-camera.

td#right {display:none !important;} Illustration: Sam Davies   The train is late. The trains are always late. Table the lost minutes. I absent-mindedly scroll Twitter in a glass shelter as the December cold gets its claws in. Before skipping over a review of the latest Jungle Book remake I’m stopped mid-feed by an autoplay video. Julia Roberts dances in a subway carriage for the New York Times. She grins, the plastic chairs smile back with yellow and orange teeth. The sound is off—my headphones are still playing Hop Along’s Not Abel. The weird thing is, that song won’t yield the floor. Instead it steps in to lead.
