This is an idea I hashed out in conversation with my marketing person. We really went through a whole brainstorm: What are some creative interesting ways we can approach doing this video [for "The Resolution"] as an experiment of some sort?
Our goal with the video is ‘Let's not go literal.' I'd rather just make a music video than try to make some crazy statement, you know. We're still in the editing process.
There are no vampires in it! It's cinematic and has dark qualities to it. The most whimsical element in it is our mermaid. That was handled in a Tim Burton-esque kind of way.
Stephanie had been in the process of editing her movie when we hooked up. [On set] she had ideas of where to place things and how the visual should play out. Signing off on shots. This was kind of an effort with her and a director of photography named Noble Jones [3 Doors Down, Sevendust, Sloan].… I took a lot of my direction from Noble in the sense that it was a more of positioning and placement.
