Covid Creativity: 9Jan2021

“The Moon” Official Video
by Katie Ditschun 

“The Moon” is ethereal, spooky. I purposely chose to release the official video 29 December, during the last full moon of 2020.

It was filmed in November 2020 on the Glengarry Trails and at a friend’s place in Ste-Anne-de-Prescott with Noël Campbell (on cello, as The Moon) and Madeline Gerow (as The Girl). My goal was to capture the emptiness of a barren forest and the moody skies above the windswept marsh, to create a sense of eeriness. In editing process I was able to play with lighting and video speed to give the sense that something was “a little off.” 

Watch the video… what does The Moon say to you?
The Moon knows all your secrets 

No sense trying to hide

Can’t cover your footsteps

The moon knows where you’re going tonight

So I’ll talk to the moon

See what she says

I’ll just ask the moon

See what she knows

I’ll look to the moon

She’ll uncover the truth

The moon knows all your secrets

No sense trying to hide

Can’t cover your missteps

The moon can see it all in the night

“The Moon” is on Katie’s debut album, Spare Skirt (2019).
