Scheme Engine has announced the release of Kimberly Stuckwisch’s video for Angel Olsen’s 'All the Good Times', the debut single from Big Time on Jagjaguwar Records.
From the album announcement, Big Time is an album about the expansive power of new love, tempered by a profound and layered sense of loss. The album was written with Olsen coming to terms with her queerness and following the death of both of her parents.
Stuckwisch directed Olsen and her partner, Beau Thibodeaux, in a story she describes as “a tale of running over yourself while running from yourself to yourself.” Stuckwisch employed two distinct cinematic approaches, rustic and real in contrast to dreamy nightmare/surreal sequences to capture a duality of existence. The video also gives nods to earlier Olsen videos, including reprising the silver tinsel wig from her 'My Woman' music video.
In a heartfelt tribute to the artist, Stuckwisch said: “Sometimes you come across a human with such a brilliant spirit that it shakes your universe up in the best of ways. Nothing compares to the laughs, the tears, the talks, the trust. It’s hard to put into words the joy you’ve brought into my world this past year @angelolsenmusic.”
Said Olsen: “It’s been really special to work with Kimberly Stuckwisch, I’m so proud of how our visions came together. Making videos is always a bit like chasing a tornado, but I had such a fun time. I even learned how to drive a stick on Big Tujunga Canyon.”
The collaboration follows Stuckwisch’s video for Angel Olsen and Sharon Van Etten’s "Like I Used To," which was an official selection at this year’s SXSW.
