Preview: Robyn "Call Your Girlfriend" (Radio Fritz fan version)
In February Radio Fritz presented Robyn's gig at Astra in Berlin. So, because we like her, we inquired if her camp would be interested in a video to the song "Call Your Girlfriend" from her album "Body Talk", because there was a certain idea for it. Although they were already working on the official clip, they gave us the green light to shoot an alternative fan version.
In March we put out a casting call on Radio Fritz.
Searching for girls, who had their hair cut like Robyn to pose as her lookalikes. Also, we asked for girls who can get very upset very fast. Soon you will see why. A lot of girls sent in photos and videos. Going through them was great, because you could feel these girls really wanted to be in a video associated with Robyn. And yes, some were a little funny, too.
I mean, it takes a lot of courage to send recorded footage of yourself not knowing who will see it, right? Thanks to every girl who took the time!
I shot the video in April and May with the help of Alex Pinheiro, who was the rest of a proper team in one person. The girls let us into their homes, showed us their neighborhoods and were all, without exception, very easy to work with.
We traveled quite a bit for the girls who can get very upset very fast, but some of the lookalikes came a long way to be at their shooting in Berlin.
So, now it's done. In a few days we'll premiere our video at Radio Fritz, but when we do, you will find it above this post.
Right below is the official clip. Enjoy!
