I always try to just be myself. Sometimes I make songs and albums of spilled guts deep reaching ideas and send them out to all the strangers in the world, but mostly I’ve tried to keep the real daily life private. I’ve wanted to share the meat and hide the skin. Now I find myself surprised to be revealing a beautifully filmed portrait version of this home life; the simple routines with my young daughter, the meandering ideas that burble out unformed. Our lived moments aren’t the art project, but a picture of our little world with its everyday light and shadows, the place where we actually live. Coffee and oatmeal on a school morning, talking again about death and jokes and emptiness. – Phil Directed by: Mattias Evangelista Director of Photography: Riley Donavan Executive Producer: Phil Elverum Featured Music by: The Microphones & Mount Eerie Additional Score by: Mark Hadley and Simone Porter Edited by: Mattias Evangelista Colorist: Dylan Hageman Sound Design and Mix: Roman Richard Shot on Location: Washington State
