The video for “Black And White” was shot in Vancouver, with Wazo Productions, a new company owned by Kelly and Juniper from the band Clone. Singer Lana Ryma reflects on the process, “We had a great experience filming with Wazo and can’t wait to do another one. The set took a few days to prepare and filming took about 8 hours. Plus not to mention editing time. Crazy how much work goes into a 3 minute song! It was shot at Powell Street Studios which is a multi use recording studio, production space.
