We're getting really excited about releasing our video for this hauntingly beautiful track from the wonderful Trinity Roots fellows - not long now! We developed the video concept with the band and the hugely talented people at Body FX, and had so much fun working on this unusual video.
We filmed the video in colour but our actors were made up in monochromatic make-up, producing a silent film era colour scale. The props, set and costumes were also sourced and made to the monochromatic aesthetic. Keep an eye out for mermaids...

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.
