Here We Go Magic | “Tunnelvision”

“All of the footage was captured on the edge of a large lake in the Catskill Mountains. “The temperature had dropped the night before and the lake was starting to freeze. Everything was half-frozen,” recalls Peking’s Nat Johnson. A lot of the footage was recorded with Snejina’s homemade kaleidoscope fastened to the lens of the camera. The footage was then manipulated by hand, projected and filmed again. “Super-8 projection has an anxious, hypnotic effect that we thought served Here We Go Magic’s song well. We wanted something simple and transcendent,” Snejina explains. “Look closely and you’ll enjoy beautiful patterns in the seemingly random imagery,” notes Peking co-founder, Greg Mitnick.”
