Portugal. The Man 'Modern Jesus' by AG Rojas
AG Rojas and his crew visited 15 locations in America for this mammoth and exhaustive shoot for the promo to Modern Jesus by Alaska/Oregon band Portugal. The Man.
Shot over 20 days back in April, AG unveils an evolving and highly watchable promo with beautifully contrasting scenes from locations such as Mississippi, Louisiana, Texas, Tennessee, West Virginia, Michigan, Wyoming, Utah and California. Along the way AG and his crew encountered barbed-wire wrestlers in Texas, musicians in New Orleans, banjo players in Tennessee, a boxer in Detroit, Wyoming ranchers, and flew a bi-plane out of Denver. His DoP Michael Ragen captured in all (including a cow birth) on a variety of formats - everything here is original footage.
It's spellbinding, and the whole story of the shoot (and plenty of pics) can be found at producer Anna Rau's excellent blog Well Bless My Stars.
