Video Drone: Watch Mat Kearney's Entirely Drone-Filmed Single-Take Video
  • TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 04, 2014

Mat Kearney is the bright soul-pop blues folk-rock singer/songwriter who pulls the genres together to fashion a universally enjoyable and deeply personal single like 2011's "Ships In The Night." Now he's back with the first single, "Heartbeats," off his forthcoming album Just Kids. The 5 minute video was shot entirely by drones in a single take, and it's one hell of an ambitious shoot.

The video was shot at the iconic — and very busy — 4th street bridge in LA. You know it, it's that iconic underpass where Danny Zucko raced the Shark Grease, and any number of violent Hollywood show downs occurred (Terminator, Transformers, Anchorman). Add dodging traffic to the list of obstacles, but list it just under racing a car down the bridge through that traffic in the space of a few minutes. If you stay tuned for the credits there's some pretty stressful and informative B-roll that will do justice to the difficulty of this shoot.



See a less choreographed Mat Kearney play through a few of his Young Love hits, including the very first acoustic performance of "Ships In The Night," in our Baeble Rooftop Session:
