Paul McCartney Shoots New Music Video with Natalie Portman and Johnny Depp

Paul McCart­ney gave his new album, Kiss­es on the Bot­tom, a lit­tle plug last night when he pre­miered in L.A. a “self-direct­ed video” for his new song, ‘My Valen­tine’. Shot on a 35mm cam­era by Oscar-win­ning cin­e­matog­ra­ph­er Wal­ly Pfis­ter (Memen­to, Incep­tion, etc.), the black & white video fea­tures Natal­ie Port­man and John­ny Depp “each trans­lat­ing the lyrics of the song into sign lan­guage…”  and John­ny play­ing some solos on the gui­tar. Sir Paul shot the two stars sep­a­rate­ly (watch below) before bring­ing them togeth­er into his final clip. McCart­ney’s web site has more details on the film.

    Let’s be accu­rate… 35mm is either the motion pic­ture for­mat or the still pho­tog­ra­phy for­mat. It does not refer to the dig­i­tal still & video cam­eras that resem­ble 35mm cam­eras… there­fore one can­not make a black and white video with a 35mm cam­era.

    Sor­ry… I’m feel­ing rather pedan­tic at the moment. :-)

  • Beautiful..and no oth­er com­ments
