One of the aspects of our work that we enjoy the most is coming up with music video concepts - and we like to ensure that each of our videos are very unique. Music videos involve collaboration between artists and new friends, as well as cohesion between the visuals and the sound.
It was fantastic to have a budget to work with thanks to
New Zealand On Air (NZOA).
We built a whimsical and entirely structurally sound tree-house for the video in Lance Ravenswood's FreeLance Garrett Street studio. Lance crafted a bizarre and wondrous inter-dimensional telescope to travel between the real world and that of the shadow puppets.
He also constructed a life-sized version of the puppet "The Greedy Man".
We were thrilled to discover that Estère and her MPC Lola had received due recognition and placed #2 for AFROPUNK's TOP 20 SONGS 2014 for I SPY, an our video for I SPY placed #2 for
AFROPUNK's TOP 20 MUSIC VIDEOS 2014. Not only that, Estère's first ever album placed #4 for AFROPUNK's TOP 20 ALBUMS 2014!
Well done Estère!
