Damien Jurado – Caskets

Seattle-based Matt Daniels (thinklab) directed a gorgeous new music video for Damien Jurado’s song, Caskets. I haven’t been too impressed with the bulk of music videos I’ve seen lately but Matt Daniels’ cinematography alone is worth the 1.5 seconds it will take to move your mouse-hand slightly downwards to click the play button.


My pal Brian over at Shotsringout has a great little interview with Daniels as well.

  • damn this video is amazing. glad you liked it.

  • thanks for the behind the scenes link – those locations are so beautiful

  • Sinking Cities

    Great music video and behind the scenes link. It makes me want to get a 35mm adapter for my HDV cam.

  • Krystal

    what a wonderful video.
    It reminds me a lot of the Assassination of Jesse James by the coward Robert Ford, which I think is one of the most beautifully shot movies I’ve seen in quite awhile.

  • Beautiful video. Can anyone comment on specific locations? I grew up in Eastern Washington and some of the locations look very similar the areas that surrounded my home town. Gorgeous.

  • wow! thanks jeff for the post. cole, we shot almst all the the exteriors w/in a 60 mile radius of quincy, wa. the house and the surgery scene were done in paha, wa near ritzville. we stayed in the best little motel in lind, wa (home of the combine demolition derby).

  • That’s great! I grew up in Quincy. I recognized those locations to be near my old stomping grounds. Did you guys shoot in the Pot Holes? Again, beautiful video – did you guys have ties to Quincy or just found it on your location scouts? I am in Utah now – just finished up film school at BYU. My friend and partner at J-Four (our production company) shot Damien for Daytrotter in Salt Lake earlier this year. Small world.

  • Between Quincy and Utah you’ve lived in some scenic places. Our A.C. grew up in Quincy, but most of us are from the Seattle area. I’m not sure about Pot Holes, but we were in the Palisades and Quincy lakes for most of the exterior shots.
