Drop The Lime 'State Trooper' by Chris Foggin
Director Chris Foggin and DoP Tasha Back take Drop The Lime's cover of Bruce Springsteen's State Trooper – recently used to trail the new Tom Cruise movie Jack Reacher – and turn it into a noir road-trip. They've given it a lovely high-contrast black and white sheen and brought the aesthetics of 50's car-chases by back-projecting the landscapes seen from interior vehicle shots. Perfect, in fact, for Drop The Lime's modern rockabilly feel.
"Deadly [Drop The Lime's label] were looking for a simple but stylish live performance against black with a 50's style microphone," Tasha explains. "Chris Foggin found a beautiful vintage Ford Mustang car and, in keeping with the 1950's feel, I suggested using back projection as a homage to the way a driving scene would have been filmed in that era."
