Watch: Christina Perri – “Distance” (feat. Jason Mraz) – Official Music Video

June 30, 2012


Directed by Elliott Sellers

“Distance” is certainly a favorite of all the videos I’ve been a part of. It’s rare to make a video where the outcome is exactly what the director foretold. Elliott‘s vision is clear and he executed each shot with style and finesse.

It’s important to like the person who’s operating the camera (as well as the crew), as they’re the ones you’re performing for first. AND I am thankful for the way they can take a dork like me and pair him with a radiant beauty like Christina and make it work.

As for the song itself, I’ve told Christina about a hundred times how grateful I am to be the one singing this with her. The sweeping melody paired with the tension in the story makes singing “Distance” feel more like an event than just a song.

I knew people would fall for this song. :)

Congrats CP and Elliott.

-Jason

    What else is good by the lovely Christina Perry? Can anyone recommend anything? I don’t know, I think any, of her catalogue, current or back, besides this wonderful collaboration.
