Big Sky's Miky Wolf Edits The Raconteurs "Old Enough Live" With Ricky Skaggs and Ashley Monroe(December 08, 2008)
DMN Newswire--2008-12-8--Jack White and his band The Raconteurs were joined in the studio by 13-time Grammy winner Ricky Skaggs and country singer/songwriter Ashley Monroe to re-record a bluegrass-inspired version of the bands newest single "Old Enough," from their "Consolers Of the Lonely" album. The joyous bluegrass inspired version, "Old Enough Live", was released digitally, by Third Man/Warner Bros., exclusively through Amazon.com on December 2, 2008 (the same day the video for the tune is set to premiere), followed with a wide digital release and CD issue on December 9, 2008. Vinyl fiends will have to wait until December 16 for the single to hit 7".
"Old Enough Live," lensed by O Positive's director/photographer Autumn de Wilde, with whom Wolf has collaborated numerous times, was shot in Ocean Way Studios (Nashville, TN) and it fell to Wolf to capture the energy of the live performance for the viewer. "The live recording was shot with two cameras, producing about 20 hours of footage. I wanted to capture the joy, the great energy, the moment that they all so enjoyed and that I, too, wanted to be a part of. In that studio they shared an intimacy, a creative camaraderie and great improvisational moments like the spontaneous homage to the Everly Brothers with the 'Wake Up Little Susie' riff. The most important thing for the band was that the performances feel live, not dubbed over. That was the intent and I think we pulled it off!"
Autumn de Wilde said of her collaborations with Miky Wolf, "He is my favorite editor and has been an incredible creative partner. What I have really noticed and appreciate about Big Sky is that they forge strong bonds and relationships with their clients. They have a thirst for creative projects that inspire them. Miky has always been an invaluable part of my process. Not only is he an incredible editor, but also a great sounding board, without being intrusive, for ideas I have during the process of making a piece."
Representing Big Sky Editorial were Editor Miky Wolf and Assistant Editor Andrew Henderson. The project was produced by O Positive (Santa Monica, CA and New York, NY) and directed by Autumn de Wilde, produced by Chris Rossi and DP'd by Scott Henriksen.
Wolf cut the Original 4:16 "Old Enough" music video on Final Cut. The 6:56 "Old Enough Live", was cut on AVID.
