Behind the Scenes of Phoenix's Trying To Be Cool
Taylor Prewitt

Hold the lip-synching phone. Phoenix isn't down for the typical air vocals. In their new video for "Trying To Be Cool", the band plays live as the crew races between shots creating one long take of the song. The Creators Project, a celebratory collaboration between Intel and VICE, created a behind the scenes documentary chronicling the unique obstacles and successes of the CANADA directed video. The Barcelona directorial duo discusses the challenges of producing such a feat of film, including the difficulty of timing each shot (note the gigantic timers) and the thought process behind the concept. You can watch the Behind the Scenes Video and the finished product below.

"Trying To Be Cool" is Phoenix's latest single from their recent album Bankrupt out now on Loyaute/Glassnote Records.
