Dominique Isserman shooting new video clips for Leonard

Postby swisschris » Wed Jan 18, 2012 12:32 am

Actually, I don't think it is a coincidence that Leonard met the press in Paris....
as Dominique Isserman will open a new exhibition in Paris on January 18th...

Anyway, in a new interview she stated the following:

Do you see yourself evolving into moving film?

Yes, actually I always felt very close to film expression. I am actually shooting a few videos clips for Leonard Cohen coming up album.


Looking forward to these clips...

The whole interview is here:

Well, it is way too late for Darkness to be supported with the video clip!

Well because the album need to be supported by single and clip when it is released... E.g. when Croatian TV plays "Top of the Shops" weekly chart, they don't have any video to play when they say "And on place number one, Leonard Cohen's Old Ideas" and so for 5 weeks... Any TV show which played Top Ten albums in first two weeks of release had to play a clip to accompany the top ten albums... And Leonard did not have the clip. Now, two months after the release, is too late. I mean, he can still make it into Croatian TV but most of the markets, the moment is gone...

Am I being perhaps a tad optimistic in hoping that these clips may be for another new album? I know he's never bee profilic in terms of songwriting but I think I remember reading in the mojo interview that Leonard hinted that he wanted to finish the next record before touring again. Seems a bit late in the day to be making videos for old ideas tracks, though maybe it's just a creative project they wanted to do for fun rather than as something that has some sort of commercial goal.

Of course.

But maybe he also now dropped the idea he will finish next record until August 2012. The rehearsals will take at least two months as well... He tried to finish Old Ideas in 2010 in-between tour legs gap of 7 months, but didn't make it.
