LAUREN JENKINS PREMIERES "STOLEN CAR" VIDEO
At the end of 2019, I had this overwhelming desire to get out of town. So I headed West. Most of my time was spent in the car, just driving around New Mexico taking it all in. That's where I got the idea to make a music video for my version of Bruce Springsteen's "Stolen Car." I didn't have a budget or any gear, but I decided that shouldn't get in the way of the vision I had.
I think the backdrop of the West in all its beauty - and its loneliness, at times - perfectly captures the emotion behind the song. With the exception of one unused scene from my Running Out Of Road short film, all of this video was shot on my iPhone. When you have a story you want to tell you find a way to tell it. Hopefully this video helps you to feel this song in a deeper way. It's a no budget, no crew, no gear, no production representation of the essence of this song... at least through my car window.
