Alicia J. Rose

Director - The Gift of Gravity
Photographer/Director Alicia J. Rose is known for imbuing riveting story structures and compelling visual aesthetic into her body of work. She has played a key role in visually branding such successful Northwest bands as the Decemberists, Menomena and Laura Gibson and made popular videos for national artists like Mastodon, Cake and Bob Mould. NPR First Watch reports on her video for Laura Gibson’s “La Grande” - "It feels strongly like the Coen brothers' version of True Grit — elegant, well-structured, and replete in Western imagery…  It's a treat for the eyes even as the images send a slight chill climb up your spine.” Rose has directed over 24 music videos as well as completing her first narrative short “The Gift of Gravity” in 2014.
