Please share around, or repost as i’m trying to really get this out there! 🙂
The details are pretty chaotic… but during these series of events (which could be made into a pretty hilarious but beautiful short story) I went to pick up Aaron so he could live at mine for a few days.
The scene was classic… I went to the train station… all he had was a suitcase with his mac, camera and a few clothes inside it – that was all he needed, he wasn’t a materialist in anyway.
It so happened that on that exact weekend I had decided to set about recording and scoring out my debut album at KMD studios.
I had already recorded a few tracks from it and we decided to shoot a video for this single ‘Like Gods’ which has been collecting dust for a while now.
The way in which we shot this was by using a whole new video production technique which I simply can’t leak… It would be like a magician telling you how a great trick worked….Let’s just say no editing and lots of projectors.
Aaron and I are both very fond of a kind of film-making that we like to call “Real-Time.” This means shooting something where the final product has not been colour graded and hardly edited – the film-maker focuses all his/hers efforts on the capabilities of the camera to capture a raw and real emotions of the subject real-time.
Because of this technique the video took no longer than half an hour to shoot and there is not one cut in it.
As we drove home from shooting, we saw a massive corn field, stopped the car and simply walked around enjoying the vast space we found ourselves in, taking pictures and messing around… Here are a few snaps from the moments after shooting that video, I took these on my phone for no reason and tweeted them… now they are a part of a story… I love that.
It was a good weekend
