Robert Schwartzman’s ‘Second Chances’ Video Premiere
Posted by Rooney on May 11th, 2012
Robert Schwartzman’s ‘Second Chances’ video premiered today through The Huffington Post!
Directed by childhood friend, Max Goldblatt, and featuring appearances by good friend Brian Bell (of Weezer) and brother Jason Schwartzman, the video is a family affair.
Of the video, Schwartzman says “Max (Goldblatt) and I grew up together making short films in my backyard. I’ve always loved his passion for films and ability to execute an idea with limited resources, so it’s great to have finally collaborated on a music video together.” The song itself was inspired by an extended trip Schwartzman took to Tibet, spending time with Tibetan Monks and living in a monastery.”
Speaking on the lyrical inspiration Schwartzman reveals “When you see how other people live in other parts of the world, you appreciate how many good opportunities we have in our country. It frustrates me when I see people here who take things for granted. I wrote the song as a kind of a wake-up call for those people to get it together. I think we all have chances.”
