Brittany Kwasnik releases her second video called "City"

Dollard  des Ormeaux singing sensation Brittany Kwasnik released her latest video last week, the second from her new CD launched in June. She shot it one Saturday evening downtown, appropriate since it is called "City."In a Q & A conducted by her publicist Bob Dubois, Brittany was asked why she chose City as her new    “I thought visually, a video for this song would really bring it to life!” she said. “I wanted to capture the beauty of Montreal, as it is the city that inspired the line ‘If I was a city, you would be my lights.’  As I was writing the song, I was thinking about the night-time skyline of Montreal, specifically from the view on top of Mount Royal. The lights from that view of the city, at night, are so powerful and breathtaking. I really wanted to share that image with everyone that listens to the song.

The shoot took place on a cold Saturday evening in October.  It was a very cold and windy night, probably the most chilly we had experienced since the end of last winter,” Brittany remarked. “It made the night feel quite long! We began to shoot around seven in evening, and I got home around two in the morning! Although it was lots of fun to shoot, I really wish I had considered to wear something with a few more layers for some of the shots!

As Brittany describes it,  the idea for the video really matches the lyrics, especially of the chorus  “If I was a city, you would be my lights, through my eyes, you'd shine so bright, if I was an airplane, dancing through the sky, you would be my guide.  Besides the various shots of the city, you can see in the video that I'm on a journey from my apartment to the airport.”

For the shoot Brittany gained access to a rooftop in Griffintown  and did  some walking scenes  on downtown St. Catherine Street.  “It was funny shooting there, because it was a Saturday night and there were tons of people walking on the streets,” she says. “We had to get scenes without people getting in the way, and without people staring right into the camera as they saw us walk by.”
