Certainly, none of us will forget the year 2020. It has changed the world completely. Most of all, the culture scene was harshly affected by the restrictions which were caused by the virus. Hundreds of concerts and tours were canceled. Moreover, even blockbusters like MULAN weren’t shown in theaters. Therefore, especially musicians had to become creative in a new way in order to find adequate platforms for their performances. One of those creative talents is superstar Taylor Swift.
BUT A CREATIVE UNION
The Pennsylvania-born singer teamed up with Aaron Dessner (The National). Furthermore, Jack Antonoff (Bleachers), and Justin Vernon (Bon Iver) joined the team to create an album that crosses genres.
It is a musical journey that allows us to cry and laugh. Furthermore, during these trying times, it makes us feel like we’re not quite so alone.
Taylor Swift and her co-producers recorded “folklore” thousands of miles apart from each other. Thereby, they had never been in the same room together… until now.
TAYLOR SWIFT AND DISNEY+ PRESENT THE PREMIERE OF “FOLKLORE” TODAY
Today, on November 25, at 12:01 AM PT, “folklore: the long pond studio sessions” premieres on Disney+. The video was filmed in upstate New York in September 2020.
Taylor Swift, accompanied by co-producers Aaron Dessner and Jack Antonoff along with a guest appearance by Justin Vernon (Bon Iver), performs each song in order of her critically adored, five-star album “folklore”. Besides, for the very first time, she reveals the stories and secrets behind all 17 songs.
THE CAMERA SET
“folklore: the long pond studio sessions” was directed by Taylor Swift. Moreover, it was filmed on the best affordable camera on the market, the Lumix S1H.
Thereby, six of those mirrorless cameras with Leica lenses were embedded in the studio. Furthermore, one Alexa LF was used with an Angenieux 24-290 on a Furio robotic camera with 30+ feet of curved track.
The result is a very intimate clip in which Taylor Swift allows us to take part in the development and production of her songs. You can watch the film on Disney+ from today.
