Award-Winning Music Video Director Shane Drake Shoots Clive Davis’ Say Anything Video

In-demand director Shane Drake takes on a new music video for J Records’ Say Anything


Los Angeles, CA -- (ReleaseWire) -- 01/31/2007 --Director Shane Drake is already set to start shooting his new music video for the buzzworthy band Say Anything’s new track, “Wow, I Can Get Sexual Too” from Clive Davis’ label, J Records. The shoot is set for a total of two days and will be on location in Van Nuys. Drake just finished shooting a video for the band The Higher last week in Las Vegas, and in the midst of editing, he is already preparing for a new shoot.

Utilizing Drake’s brilliantly subtle humor and soulful creativity, Drake says the video will take viewers through a topsy-turvy world of surreal provocation, colorful characters, and dance numbers oddly choreographed to Say Anything’s unforgettable tune. The lead singer, Max Bemis, will lead viewers through the journey via a somewhat public phone call to some unexpected females.

Director Shane Drake says, “Interspersed throughout the video, Max will find himself in a few familiar environments, displaying somewhat recognizable, yet quite unorthodox dance moves, you know, think Napoleon Dynamite meets Christopher Guest in Waiting for Guffman.”

The music video will be a complete conundrum. At the end of the video, the viewers will be left wondering if the events in the video actually transpired, or if it was simply a magnificently gauche display of wonderment. Fans will be left wondering how Drake has done it again.
