Eminem and Ed Sheeran’s collaboration is everything and the behind-the-scenes look at the making of the video for “River,” which is the latest single off last year’s Revival show Slim Shady in a different light..
The Director, Emil Nava opens up about the process throughout the short clip, breaking down how he got involved and what he wanted to achieve.
“They were very clear,” he says. “They wanted to do something Em hadn’t done before. I thought, imagine if you made a documentary about the meaning of the song and almost blurred the lines between imaginary and fiction.”
“Working with him has been so special,” added Nava. “His dedication and his passion and his vision to get it perfect is amazing.”
Eminem’s jovial personality is all over the clip, as he jokes with the cameramen and his co-star, actress/model Sarati. At one point, Marshall Mathers laughs hysterically.
When asked what she did to make him laugh, Sarati responded: “I told the stupidest joke… this joke to be exact – What has 75 balls and screws old women? Bingo.”
