“Wish We Were Older” – Quote from Angel Baribeau about the creation of music video
Working with Nang K’uulas/Patrick Shannon was a privilege. He went above and beyond and I am so grateful. I am even more grateful for his patience with me.
It started with a call about a concept I had in my head. Nang K’uulas made it a reality.
Working with an all-Indigenous cast for this video is an incredibly proud moment for me.
I talk often about the importance of Indigenous/Queer representation. This video is my hope of continuously providing that representation for Indigenous/Queer youth.
One of my favourite memories was filming in the Old Port. It’s stunning and I am so glad we made that choice. I think it turned out great! Even if we almost lost my guitar, I wouldn’t trade those memories for anything.
It was an honour to work with so many incredibly strong indigenous women, and to be able to spend time with them and to hear about their lives and lived experiences. Nothing will ever compare to those conversations.
My dear friend Chris Robertson lent us his cabin to film in. It’s been in his family for decades. I don’t think it would have been nearly as successful as it was if it wasn’t for him and his generosity. I’m glad people like him exist.
