Video: Stick Figure – “Shadow”

Cocoa the Tour Dog stars in Stick Figure’s “Shadow” music video as the song and video plays as an ode to Cocoa! “Some of the easiest shots were the ones we took of Cocoa; she nailed every scene on the first take,” shares director Joe Wilson of Bulldog Media. Joe shared where some of the inspiration came from to shoot “Shadow” in black and white telling The Pier: “right when we started shooting was when Adele’s music video for ‘Hello’ was released, and that video inspired some of the color theme.”

Stick Figure has set a goal to make a music video for nearly every song from their album, Set in Stone, which is quite the task at 14 total tracks. Some of their most recent shooting took place in Costa Rica earlier this month for the tracks, “In this Love” and “Weary Eyes.” You can pick up Stick Figure’s new album Set In Stone on iTunes by clicking HERE!
