Jesse McCartney Flaunts His Romantic Side (Again) In New Music Video
Filmmaker Nick Peterson and Velorean Productions take the platinum-selling singer and his friends on a drunken, superhero hula dancing adventure. Friends was directed by filmmaker and CalArts experimental animation program grad Nick Peterson, who enlisted the help of Arizona studio Velorean Productions to produce the 2D animated piece. For McCartney, with the COVID pandemic making it impossible to film a music video, he quickly embraced the idea of producing an animated piece for his latest single. After brainstorming with my very talented directer, Nick Peterson, we landed on an idea that would follow me and some of my buddies getting drunk at the bar, turning into superheroes, and dancing on an island with hula girls. Why not? Anything is possible with animation, right? We ended up shooting the following week from behind our laptops and from the comfort of our living rooms. Though no stranger to animation, Petersen primarily directs live-action commercials and music videos. Velorean was absolutely fantastic to work with. After explaining my concept and approach to the project, Velorean felt comfortable enough to move forward.
