Out of the Woods: On location with Taylor Swift
Behind the scenes
Taylor Swift has documented a video that details the inner workings of her latest music video "Out of the Woods". The behind-the-scenes-look reveals how the multi Grammy award-winning singer had to brave the elements in order to capture the perfect shot. Part of the video was shot on location at Bethells Beach in New Zealand, which Swift claimed to be "the most beautiful beach I've ever been on in my life".
From windy beaches to a cold swimming pool and from fires to muddy waters, Swift is often captured keeping warm under a thick blanket. Talking about an upcoming mud scene, Swift said, "I'm not excited for it. It's going to be terrible, it's going to be cold and slimy."
Director Joseph Kahn, who praised Swift for her willingness to go to great lengths for her art, said in the video, "The entire video is basically Taylor suffering through an emotional landscape of trees and forests and snow and water. All that is a metaphor but it's been done practically on location."
Taylor Swift is set to perform at the 2016 Grammy Awards where she will also be contending for several awards including Album of the Year for 1989.
