Ash cloud causes chaos – 'Volcano'

May 25, 2010 | By | No Comments

Here is the video for ‘Volcano‘ by Liverpool mod-rockers The Universal. A thumping rock love song with catchy riffs if I ever heard one. I filmed the band last Friday at Liverpool Sound City and am really pleased with the outcome. More pleased than usual, as this was the second attempt at filming the band.

The first attempt was a month before at FAC251 in Manchester and the sound from the desk was awful. My filming wasn’t great either to be honest. Good sound can often sometimes carry a poor music video, but a great video can do little with poor sound. It bothered me to leave it at that so I was glad to get another crack of the whip. This time the girl on the desk was great and the band sounded  brilliant and I got good audio as a result ( a mix of clean desk and the camera mic). I also knew the songs inside out, which was helpful as I was approaching this as a single-take so could anticipate changes.

Anyway, hope you enjoy the band and the video. It’s fairly energetic. I tend to dance around a lot when I film bands. If I can’t get in the swing, it just aint rock n roll.

Nathan Jones and Wave Machines – 'The Barman'

March 17, 2008 | By | No Comments

Video document from my one-shot video project, ‘The Shoot Out Project’, as performed by Mercy poet Nathan Jones and Liverpool band Wave Machines at the Bluecoat opening weekend. The single-shot aproach is something I’ve been working with for a while now, but is perhaps best shown in the work of Vincent Moon and the Take Away Shows.
