Jake Schreier Breaks Down the Fourth Wall for Francis and the Lights with Bon Iver & Kanye West

Jake Schreier Breaks Down the Fourth Wall for Francis and the Lights with Bon Iver & Kanye West

Bicoastal production company Park Pictures director Jake Schreier breaks down the fourth wall in an entrancing new music video for Francis and the Lights’ latest track 'Friends,' featuring Bon Iver and Kanye West. The stripped-down music video leads in with an understated cameo by Kanye West and features front man Francis Farewell Starlite’s stylised moves, topped off with a choreographed duet section with Justin Vernon of Bon Iver. Moving from a softly lit white room where the characters dance through empty space onto the contrasting darkness and hot lights of a stage – and back again – the video elevates the one shot approach.

Schreier is a former Francis and the Lights band member and longtime video collaborator. The NY-based band also created the original soundtrack for Schreier’s debut debut feature film Robot & Frank.
