The 2018 Juno Awards took place this weekend in Vancouver and it was a star studded affair. We at The Field have had the chance to work with many of the amazing artists nominated. If you weren’t watching, here are some highlights.
Breakthrough Group of the Year: The Beaches
This all girl indie rock band hailing from Toronto has tons of style and a fresh sound. Check out this video directed by Emma Higgins for their song Money. It gives us major girl power vibes.
Country Album of The Year: James Barker Band, Game On
The debut album from James Barker Band has had hits like Chills and Just Sayin’. These feel good anthems are perfect for summer, and you can view the videos for them here.
If you’re dying to know how the idea for the puppet-filled, Nathan Boey-directed video came to life, Tegan Quin tells Billboard: “A few months ago I was watching a TV show about the ’80s, and a scene from Miami Vice with Don Johnson and Philip Michael Thomas came on. They were talking specifically about the episode in which they used the entire Phil Collins song ‘In the Air Tonight,’ almost as if it were a music video.”
She continues to recall, “I remember thinking how cool it would be to have Sara and I remake the famous scene. Sadly, neither of us can drive, nor did we have the time or funds to reshoot that famous scene in Miami. Instead we tapped director Nathan Boey in Vancouver to reshoot it using puppets! I think it might even be better with us as puppets than if we had been in it ourselves.”….
“They shared with me their childhood passion for Miami Vice and the rest sort of wrote itself!” director Boey says. “Eleni Creative’s dolls were beautifully custom-built, and the idea of them ripping around the city in a mini Lamborghini had me giggling throughout production.”
