Interview w/ Isaac Rentz | MLive Detroit ::
“….What’s it like shooting a video in Michigan?
I had a great time in Michigan. It’s a beautiful state and we were there right in time for the Tigers playoff run. My crew caught me up on Detroit baseball in between takes.
How did you know that trailer spot was the spot?
I picked it after seeing a few spots around Detroit. I instantly fell in love with it. If my wife would let me, I’d totally buy a summer trailer there.
Did Eminem share any childhood memories of living in trailer parks?
He definitely cracked some trailer park jokes. He kept things really light and fun on set. He was making jokes with the crew and goofing off for the behind the scenes camera.
What do think Eminem could do to help Skylar Grey’s career?
I think Eminem and Skylar feed off of each others’ energy and creativity really well. They’ve had a lot of success working together the past few years, so it’ll be exciting to see what they do with her new album….”
