Joan Jett & the Blackhearts Fight the Elements In ‘Any Weather’ Video
Fresh off the release of her latest album, ‘Unvarnished,’ which landed at the end of September, Joan Jett has debuted a brand-new video for ‘Any Weather.’
“We can stay together through any weather,” the rock heroine proclaims in the song — and then she proves it. Jett and the Blackhearts perform in front of a backdrop onto which split-screen images of everything from dolphins swimming and waves crashing against a rocky beach to straight-up flames are projected. It’s all a bit jarring, but Jett and company go on their merry way, rocking out as they are wont to do.
To create the split-screen madness, director Kevin Kerslake came up with a new camera technique — one that involved disassembling the fancy devices and reducing them to their primitive bits and pieces.
“My camera crew and I ripped apart two state of the art cameras, exposing their guts and effectively turning them into 21st Century versions of crude, antiquated devices,” Kerslake says. “They were the digital filmic equivalent of two tin cans and a piece of string.”
