Here is our new music video for the song “Breathe”: I was eight weeks pregnant when I shot it, but didn’t know it yet. On a walk along the canal in Kreuzberg, I had talked about babies with my friend Cash and he casually told me he thought I was already pregnant but I didn’t think much of it. We shot the video D.I.Y. style, in front of a green screen and under hot lights. I kept blaming the hot lights for making me throw up between takes. I reminded myself what the song is about and took nice long breaks to catch my breath again. It took a long time to shoot but it was fun and worth it. After the shoot, Dave took his piled-up hair to visit Cash at the bar he works in. Cash’s words were ringing in my ears after the long day and I dug out a pregnancy test (now I know why they come in packs of two). Lo and behold, I was (am) pregnant!
Such happy and exciting news! However pregnancy is tough and demanding work, so it’s been fun doing the post production for this particular song and reminding myself over and over again and in all situations: breathe!
