On Location - Louis Baker "Rainbow" Official Music Video

WOW. 
Talk about working with a professional - Louis was on task and hitting his marks time after time with his performance for our new collaborative music video project.  Louis received NZOA funding to create a music video for his new track "Rainbow" and we were presented with the challenge to create a video that showcases Louis' powerful, honest and stripped-back delivery.  

We made our way through seven locations in and around central Wellington, Carterton, the Tora coastline and Martinborough, filmed in streaming sunlight and torrential rain, and ambled along bush walks, beaches and shingle pathways.  We're both really looking forward to putting together this video - more soon!

AIRBORNE \\ NEW YORK CITY + SAN FRANCISCO

San Francisco is lovely, but New York City has won over our hearts, particularly the Bushwick area, in Brooklyn.  We were lucky to stay in an industrial area frequented and inhabited by creatives, specifically in a notorious apartment, the 'Sky Fortress'.  Our hosts were an amazing group of individuals who welcomed us with open arms and whose artistic and travelling endeavours are thoroughly inspiring.  They and their friends (Stephanie, and 'The Brians', Brian and Brian being the most memorable of these satellite friends) hosted a BBQ and movie night on their building's rooftop, which provides a 360 degree view of Brooklyn and the Manhattan skyline.  Unbelievable. 
We're hoping to return to the Sky Fortress next year to work on a few projects - we'll be back!

AIRBORNE \\ updates - NEW YORK CITY : Joe Blossom
We had a week to capture the spirit of New York City, and our keywords for this video (as pitched by Joe Blossom) were 'Nostalgia' and 'Abstract'.  We filmed the bustling, humid city in the magical light of twilight as well as in Subway stations, and on the rooftop of the Sky Fortress.  We captured snippets of New York wherever we went, from Williamsburg to Midtown and we are looking forward to editing our music video postcard together.

SAN FRANCISCO : Louis Baker
What a whirlwind!  We had 24 hours to film this video - and San Francisco gave us fog, clouds, bright sunshine and even a hummingbird.  The colourful, stand-alone houses and the summer chill on the other coastline of the USA provided such a contrast to our New York experience.  We were lucky enough to participate in working on part of a decorative piece that will be featured as a shrine at the Burning Man festival this year, and that will be burned right underneath the Burning Man.  Such a creative ebb and flow to this hilly, foggy city. 

MORE SOON!  We're getting very excited that we've wrapped our filming and will be able to get our music video postcards out by MID AUGUST >>

New Project, New Section - AIRBORNE \\

Have you been exploring our website recently? If you have, you may have noticed that a new page has appeared in our "videography" section.

AIRBORNE \\ is an exciting project we embark on this May, as we venture off on overseas adventures in SE Asia, Europe and the USA.  Working with previously unreleased tracks from 7 NZ musicians/bands, we are filming 7 music video postcards in 7 overseas locations, capturing our understanding of the spirit of each new place and setting it to sounds of home.  We have strict criteria to follow, as videographers - we have 3 hours to film in each location, and 72 hours to edit together a video.  We are also given a time of day (dictated by the musicians) to film, a theme, colour and keyword that describes the tone of the melody.

From mid-August 2015 we will release these AIRBORNE \\ videos, one per week.  It's going to be a beautiful collaboration between extremely talented NZ artists and our visual medium.  We've already received some of the tracks we're to work with - we feel very privileged to be working with such fantastic material.

TRINITY ROOTS - EL KAPTAIN music video

We flew down to Wellington to work on a new music video for a fantastic Trinity Roots track from their upcoming album.  We had such fun filming this video - a great group of actors/artists sourced from Wellington and Auckland, and a superb team from body art, make up and special effects maestros, BODYFX.  It was a weekend filled with laughter, that managed to run to schedule as well! 

Johnny Matias, Carolin Prinn, Asher Norris, Lance Ravenswood, James Deane, Kowhai Wilkie and Hannah Sinclair were all fantastic fun actors to work with and were all happy and quick to take on direction when it was given to them.  Many thanks to The Costume Cave who provided extraordinary assistance in achieving an authentic 1920s monochrome selection of outfits, to the solutions guru Tim Holman who dedicated his skills and so many hours of his time to helping us out.  Thanks also to Jaz Hales who joined us on Saturday and helped out and to Joff Rae.

Below are some behind-the-scenes images of the shoot.
