Babylon behind the scenes – and Jennifer?

22 Apr

filmstrip babylon videoThey’re here: behind the scenes clips from the set of the ‘Babylon’ video. Nothing Earth-shattering, mind you – Hearts of Darkness it ain’t – but it should give you a good sense of what went down in Tess’ attic that day.

Now how much would you pay? But wait – there’s more!

In video-capture mode late last night, I also stumbled on the director’s cut of the ‘Jennifer’ video, which was shot in the fall of 2001. It includes intro footage revealing the Lark Street whereabouts of the stalker as well as quick cameo appearances by a certain quartet of punk bluesgrassers and a columnist for a certain local alternative weekly.

[UPDATE 4/23: it’s now online here]

I’d forgotten all about the extra footage, but I’m sure glad I discovered it: in my small mind it enlarges the song’s “too big for Schenectady” and “all the critics love you in New York” themes.

I’ll try to webify it over the weekend, so expect a cleaner and slightly longer version of the Jennifer video online soon.

With that said: don’t hold your breath for behind-the-scenes footage from the ‘Jennifer’ shoot. A girl has her secrets.
