Sharon Van Etten & Angel Olsen 'Like I Used To' by Kimberly Stuckwisch
In the video for Like I Used To, Kimberly Stuckwisch brings us into the separate worlds of Sharon Van Etten and Angel Olsen, two of the most influential singer songwriters in American music, then draws them together via split screen.
The video is nearly entirely composed of portraits of each artist which emphasises their distinctive character. We are brought into their homes - one in the city, the other in the country. Van Etten rarely looks into the camera, Olsen invariably is looking straight down the lens.
The song is all about getting back to where you started. But ultimately the pair do stand together in one space, with a sense of shared experience and solidarity. Stuckwisch has done a great job in delivering the message that the individual greatness of these intriguing women is enhanced by their collaboration.
It was important to Sharon and Angel to show a side of themselves that their audiences have never seen.
"For Like I Used To it was important to Sharon and Angel to show a side of themselves that their audiences have never seen - alone in their homes, vulnerable, isolated... before music was expected of them, when life was pure and simple.
"I employed the usage of split screens both in-camera and in post to show the powerful connection between Sharon and Angel in their different lives. From being alone at home to performing on stage, the focus remains on the duality of their existence and the idea of remaining autonomous in the world of fame."
