Lawrence Carroll served as Art Director for the famed Nirvana music video for "Smells Like Teen Spirit" and went on to direct The Verve Pipe's first music video for "Photograph," as well as videos for Jewel, Counting Crows, Collective Soul, among others. Since that time, Lawrence has gone on to become a world-renowned painter and sculptor, best known for his table paintings made from everyday scrap materials. Carroll's work has been exhibited at the Vatican, the Hotel des Arts in Toulon, France, the Museo Correr in Venice, and documenta IX in Kassel, Germany, among other institutions. His work is held by several public collections, including the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in New York, and the Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles.
Lawrence had been on a 15-year hiatus from directing music videos before agreeing to create "Overboard." The video was shot over 3 days in the frigid cold on the shore of the upper peninsula of Lake Michigan and the lead actress is Lawrence's daughter Rory.
