Ace of Wands – 10,000 Feet (Official Music Video)
Drawing on a background of rock and roll, classical violin training and folk music, while incorporating facets of cinematic soundscapes, pop melodies and interlocking guitars and vocals.
Filmed and directed by Samuel Scott, “10,000 Feet” is the second instalment in a trilogy of videos that carry themes of physical and spiritual transformation. This video introduces audiences to Anna Mernieks, our lead guitarist. Continuing the visual elements of Canadian landscapes, fire and fabric, “10,000 Feet” sees a change in the season from summer (as previously seen in the “Grown from Good” visuals) into winter. We hiked across a frozen lake, carrying 100-pound bags of equipment, to film the video. All costume components were built by hand (including the masks, capes, prop books and fabric entity.)
“10,000 Feet” introduces a character called the Lioness, and we watch as she completes her transformation from woman into animal. The Lioness will return in the trilogy’s final video, set for release this coming fall. Each of the videos will see our band travel through different landscapes and seasons, chronicling their journeys of self-discovery, self-hatred and self-love.
Thank you for pausing to listen and watch. Please don’t hesitate to reach out if you’d like to hear our forthcoming 10,000 Feet EP prior to its release on August 17th.
