Sunday Video: Center

A mini-movie for a new song by Quarterbacks.

Quarterbacks is a pop band from New Paltz, New York, led by Dean Engle. I made this video, starring the band and set in their little town, for the song “Center,” off the new tape Quarterboy.

I love this song because it’s simple and earnest, but it carries a lot of emotional weight in terms of love and that relatable urge to pass by someone’s house just to see what they’re up to. I wanted the video to look like a home movie and like a snapshot of those feelings.
