When singer/song­writer Vikki Gil­more was look­ing for a place to shoot her mu­sic video, her Aunt Jackie gen­tly sug­gested she shoot it in Lan­caster.

For the 21-year-old Mon­treal res­i­dent, that was a rev­e­la­tion. As a child, Miss Gil­more and her fam­ily spent many a week­end in Lan­caster, where they had fallen in love with the area’s pic­turesque beauty.

And so, in the be­gin­ning of June, Miss

Gil­more and her film crew – a cou­ple of ac­tors, some videog­ra­phers, and two direc­tors – spent a week­end in the area, where they filmed at the South Lan­caster Wharf, Cooper Marsh, and a pri­vate res­i­dence.

The video is the ti­tle track of Miss Gil­more’s forth­com­ing EP, Some­one, which will be re­leased just af­ter the Labour Day week­end.

Be­fore that, the public is in­vited to catch a sneak peak of the new video, which will be aired at 20386 Old Mon­treal Road, where the video was par­tially shot. The view­ing party is on Fri­day, Aug. 17, at 6 p. m.

Miss Gil­more says that the video tells the story of two young peo­ple at the be­gin­ning of a re­la­tion­ship who don’t know what will hap­pen in the fu­ture. She says that the cou­ple wear sheep masks for much of the video, in­tended as a com­men­tary on how plenty of peo­ple would rather just “go along with the sta­tus quo” rather than think for them­selves.

Some­one, which will be launched at Le Min­istère at 4521 St-Lau­rent in Mon­treal on Sept. 15 at 7 p. m., is Miss Gil­more’s sec­ond EP. Her first, Where You’re From, was re­leased two years ear­lier.

Miss Gil­more, who cur­rently stud­ies psy­chol­ogy at McGill, says he’s in­flu­enced by old school artists like Leonard Co­hen, Joni Mitchell, and Si­mon & Gar­funkel.

The Some­one video was shot by Film& Blues Pro­duc­tions and the video was spon­sored by FAC­TOR Canada.
