Pearl Jam have shared a behind-the-scenes look at their animated video for “Retrograde”. You can check that out below:
Director Josh Wakely told Rolling Stone the following about making the video during the ongoing quarantine:
“The workflows were very weird, the video conference calls innumerable, and the sheer number of people involved — over 150 — was huge. Even though most of us have never met, I think we all feel inspired by what we accomplished together.
My sincere hope is that in the future, people everywhere can think of themselves as part of a unified team in pursuit of an urgent, common goal. This new kind of distributed teamwork seems like the right way to overcome not just complex video production challenges, but also the many shared environmental challenges we face as inhabitants of planet Earth at this moment in history. We can use technology, creativity and everything else in the toolbox to battle the existential crises of our time — from COVID-19 to the climate crisis to homelessness, inequality, hate and more. As the song says, ‘It’s gonna take much more than ordinary love to lift this up.'”
