Blue Rodeo’s latest release 1000 Arms features many a great song including their latest single, I Can’t Hide This Anymore and they’ve brought on board a first time director for the video. His name is Shelby Fenlon, a recent graduate of OCAD University in Toronto. Fenlon came to band’s attention as a result of a call out to up and coming young artists who might collaborate with the band. In 2016, Fenlon was a finalist in C Magazine’s New Critics competition and was granted the Project 31 Award for her thesis work at OCAD where she received her BFA in Photography.
“It was surreal to shoot with Blue Rodeo,” said Fenlon. “I love that such an established band was willing to take a risk on a young director and lo-fi video concept. They were up for pretty much everything except the pink bedazzled suit and there were a lot of laughs on the set.”
“We have made many videos and it is difficult to get these old dogs riled up,” says Jim Cuddy. “This video not only got us excited to see the footage but we all liked the way we looked so much, we adopted it for the stage. Fun, creative and energizing. Wonderful director and crew.”
Blue Rodeo continue their tour in June with dates in Ontario and the Western swing before winding down in Toronto at the Budweiser Stage on August 19th.
