Los Angeles-based indie folk songwriter Jamie Drake shared the official video for 'Redwood Tree' with The Talkhouse. The song is featured on Jamie Drake's stunning debut album, Everything's Fine out now via AntiFragile Music. About the video Jamie Drake told The Talkhouse, “'Redwood Tree' is a joyous song, celebrating the creation of music itself, so it made sense to have fun with the video. It was a team effort all around — coming together over time, with all the right elements, people and ideas — similar to Kristen Meyer's collage art for the album and single covers.' Video director Marke Johnson of The Made Shop adds, 'The process was technically quite simple. We started with a time lapse video of Kristen actually creating what would eventually become the single artwork. We sped this up many times to show the unfolding of the twigs and flowers. Then Jamie just shot herself using an iPhone, a couple lights, and green face paint that only revealed her eyes and mouth as she sang each layered vocal part in turn. From there it was a fairly direct process of extracting the lips and eyes, and compositing them onto the emerging time lapse twig structure.'

Two years ago, I revisited French Woods Festival of the Arts (which I attended from 1999 to 2002 as a camper/teen actor and then as an assistant director/stage manager) and BroadwayWorld kindly published an article I wrote about the experience. In light of my responsibilities at work (attorney by day, theater critic by night) and at home (including a hyperactive toddler and commuting daily between NY and NJ), I was not planning on visiting again this past summer, but that instantly changed when I learned that the camp was planning on presenting 1776 for the first time in nearly two decades - and with an all-female cast.
