Here is the first behind the scenes video of Arrows by Fences featuring Macklemore. This is so fun to watch for me because the last 2 months have been such a blur. As you can see, all of the sets were built in a warehouse and shot on green screen. Ian Hubert, Nate Taylor, and Ian Goode did such an amazing job bringing this to life with stunning imagery and VFX. I hope you enjoy it.
“Arrows” by Fences featuring Macklemore and produced by Ryan Lewis. Directed by Jason Koenig and John Keatley. It’s hard really to put into words what I am feeling right now. We literally just finished working on this video and I haven’t had time to clear my head or process what has just happened. It has been 2 solid months of hard work for so many talented people, and I am incredibly proud of what we all created. First and foremost I want to thank Fences, Macklemore and Ryan Lewis, my co-director Jason Koenig, and my wife Nichelle and our kids.
It goes without saying, but this has been an amazing opportunity that I am very grateful for. I also made some wonderful new friends along the way. It is worth mentioning that the sets for Arrows were all built in Seattle. Pre-Production, casting, filming, and all post production was done in Seattle. Seattle pride! I hope you enjoy the “Arrows” music video as much as I enjoyed working on it. Stay tuned in the coming weeks for lots of behind the scenes pictures and videos.
I have directed a few small film projects in the past few years, but what a project to get thrown into the ring on. I wouldn’t have had it any other way. This is just the beginning. John Keatley – Director / Photographer. I like the sound of that.
It’s official!!! Jason Koenig and I directed a music video for the song “Arrows” by Fences featuring Macklemore and it comes out this Monday! Holy Smokes I am excited about this. You will be able to see it on Youtube, so get ready. More soon. Thanks for watching!
