Jack Johnson makes references to his videography studies throughout his discography. He has directed two surf films, 2000's Thicker Than Water and 2002's The September Sessions. On the video for "Shot Reverse Shot" off this year's From Here to Now to You, he steps back into the director role to helm the clip. The result is a playful stop-motion film produced with a camera phone and a stack of books.
"I made the 'Shot Reverse Shot' video frame by frame while on tour in Australia and New Zealand," Johnson told Rolling Stone. "I drew pictures on a dry erase board, hotel windows, coffee tables and cups. I shot it using my phone as the camera with chairs and stacked books for the tripod. I didn't have much of an outline. I just made it up as I went, trying to parallel the lyrics the best I could."
The clip shows Johnson drawing surreal images that often include self-portraits. The pictures morph into one another and Johnson sings along. Check out the video for yourself here, and let us know what you think in the comments section below!
