‘Ring The Alarm’ is the third music video from emerging artist Rose Gray. Written to reflect how people feel when they find themselves in situations controlled by dissatisfaction, suffering and unhappy relationships; the video was conceived to be shot in an intimate manner using lingering close ups and a rouge colour scheme.
Directed by Graham Bryan and photographed by Luca Ciuti, the film was shot in three locations around Shoreditch, a roof top overlooking Cambridge Heath Station, an apartment near Bethnal Green and a the inside of a taxi. Filmed on the Alexa, we used an iPad to light the inside of the taxi.
The third single from Malka’s new album Ratatatat, ‘Falling’, is about the power of music to have a variety of meanings. As Malka herself mentions in her interview with The Skinny, “What I love most about music is that it can mean one thing to the writer and another to the listener. [Falling] is about not standing in line and ignoring what is going on in the world. But it can equally be about a break-up of a relationship.”
Directed by Lee Bamsey and shot by cinematographer Stephen Gray. Element 26 were enlisted to perform the online and the grade for Malka’s latest music video. We enjoyed working with this highly creative team to create the look that this important music video deserves. Shot on Alexa, the various VFX elements were completed by Tony Lee of DigiFreak.
This is Give It All To You – a music video we’re tremendously proud to have made for Rose Gray. Directed by Graham Bryan, the video was filmed at the infamous Ivy House pub in Nunhead. The same location, with it’s distinct 60’s look, was recently used in the Tom Hardy vehicle, Legend.
Shot on twin Alexas, DoP Luca Ciuti did a stunning job creating two distinct looks for the video. This was to help communicate that the film took place over two different time zones. This production was a joy to shoot. With so many talented extras on set, it would have been impossible to avoid a few moments of magic, for example when the band spontaneously broke into an impromptu rendition of Valerie.
Give It All To You was shot over (one very long day) – but it was certainly worth it and we hope you think so too.
Crosspact are a heavy metal band from Vienna…The objective for this music video was to create something high energy and loud in keeping with the band’s music.
After successfully producing Maceo Plex’s first video, we were delighted when Eric and the guys at Kompakt got back in touch and invited us to produce the next one.
The brief for ‘Conjure Superstar’ was deceptively simple. We were asked to create a video which would court controversy and go viral.
The video was shot over two days in three locations, using GoPros to simulate the perspective of a mobile phone.
The video was released by Kompakt on the 8th of August and received over 145,000 views in its opening weekend.
The video for Conjure Superstar was promptly picked up by the press with THUMP UK (a website run by Vice Magazine) describing the video as ‘ a clever, innovatively shot video, a throwback to the 90s when Jonathan Glazer was at his peak and every Bjork video was a mini-masterpiece’
We were hired in 2011 by Cross Town Rebels for the first time. We were charged with producing a compelling music video for one of their emerging talents, Maceo Plex.
Shot on Alexa, we constructed a small 5” x 6” stage upon which the music video was shot. Full body make-up and latex paint was used to create the oozing creature.
Slashed seat affair is the winner of best music video 2009. The music video was filmed in an old rave house in Bow and all the frames used in the film were composited during post production.
