My business partner, Johnny Baird and I were recently asked to film a series of Live Lounge style videos for their upcoming album. The first of which is their tongue-in-cheek version of Olivia Newton-John's 'Physical'. The following releases will be a mix of new and older material.
This music video was shot in the Pianodrome in Edinburgh by Jonathan Baird and myself. I also edited, with Max Joss creating the opening title card.
I was asked to help film Docken Leaf's - Brian Docherty (Scientific Support Dept. The Wayne Devro Set) and Ken McCluskey (The Bluebells. McCluskey Brothers) - live rendition of their track "Orienteering". As much as I enjoyed filming the track, I was eager to make my own edit.
The second video I ever made, it shows the setting up of a drum kit. I was (and still am) enamoured with the musical montages of Vince Gilligan and wanted to try my hand at making something mundane visually exciting in conjuncture with music.
