Bacon's 'Hitchhiker' Promo Is a Retro Romp Through a Wasteland
Bacon has co-produced a new music promo for Parisian trio Tristesse Contemporaine's 'I Didn't Know'.
Directed by Ada Bligaard Søby, 'Hitchhiker' was shot over three days in Los Angeles, California & near the Salton Sea during August 2014.
Ada wanted to explore wanderlust in a semi-post-apocalyptic landscape, and along the way hint to the hedonism in regards to our wasteful relationships towards everything.
Commenting on the shoot, Ada said: "I had shot similar scenes of young kids hitchhiking on volcano fields on Iceland and on the hills of Denmark previously to the Los Angeles part, but in the editing room the LA material took on it’s own life together with the brilliant track 'I Didn't Know'."
"We ran the production out of my best friend Brian Lee Hughes’ house in Silverlake, he owns Castleface Records and the newly opened gallery SADE in Los Angeles, and is an expert in hospitality, and giggling," Ada said. "It was produced by Ryan Curtis and shot by DOP Jeremy Peele – both bright new comers in the LA movie business from the state of Georgia."
