Girl Blue has debuted the latest video from her album “I am Not a Star”. The bluesy thumper of a track is paired with choreography by Hanna Straney and was shot and edited by Shannon Straney whose photography regularly appears in this publication.
I spoke to Shannon about how the video came together.
“I’ve known Arielle for a while now and everything she’s done as Girl Blue has consistently blown me away. My sister, Hannah, had the idea to get everyone together and film something, so we picked the song and brainstormed a bit about what it was about Drunk that resonated with us and how to turn that into a tangible aesthetic . She, as well as the rest of the dancers in the video, go to the Conservatory of Dance at SUNY Purchase – we shot everything in an afternoon the day after Thanksgiving,” Shannon Straney told me.
