Here’s my latest for the lads in A Breach of Silence once again. Amazing dudes and amazing performers! The following is the new video and some info from the label, with a little bit from me.

Vultures is a song about the struggles in life, and fighting through them”, states lead vocalist Rhys Flannery.“Whenever you feel like you are alone, regardless of how great the pressure, there’s always someone out there that’s willing to help. As hard as it may be, you’ve just got to search for them… there’s always a light at the end of the tunnel.”  Guitarist Mat Cosgrove continues, “We talked about one of us having a real bad day, and someone worse off had helped us out of this situation and it really put things into perspective… So we came up with the story line of a homeless person who could easily take the wallet out of necessity to survive, instead goes out of his way to find the owner, and then saves his life.”

The video was directed by Col Cadell and shot in Fortitude Valley, QLD, Australia. We used low shot angles, with the sky as a background to evoke a feeling of openness, and used high angle shots at the end when the homeless man rescues the businessman,” states Col. (from

Time to hit things!

This is a dual play through with some trading 4’s to Hoedown by Zomboy with Mike Malyan and the extraordinary Troy Wright. They caught up at his studio while Mike was in Australia playing with Monuments at the Soundwave festival earlier in the year. I worked on the roving shots, colour correction and noise removal.

Very special thanks to everyone that helped make it happen:
Obviously Mike for suggesting this collab! Tim Braitling from Roulette Custom Drums Australia for lending that beautiful kit to Mike as well as manning and providing that awesome wide shot! Colin Cadell for that shooting roving shot and helping make this vid look lush! Adam ‘Nolly’ Getgood from Periphery for mixing the audio, both kits sound massive considering how much spill we had in this room from both kits! And last but not least Adam Swan for providing moral support and helping with gaffer tape duties on the day! haha

This video was done in one take. We used 6 different cameras running simultaneously. Those were:

Wide Side Shot – Canon 5dMk2 16-35mm Lens
Roving Shot – Canon 5dMk3, Zeiss Lens
Troy Cymbal Shot – GoPro 3 Black
Mike Tom Shot – GoPro 3 Black
Both Over Heads – GoPro 3 Black’s

The Darkest Road

I’m beyond proud to present the video I created for Australian Metalcore/Powercore legends A Breach of Silence. Logistically this was one of the biggest clips I’ve created in my time working within the Music Video medium. Here’s a few notes on the filming locations, process and equipment used:

Story Elements:
The story footage was shot on a private production farm in the outer Brisbane area. With the help of Jacob Schneider (Actor/Photographer) and William France (Photographer/Musician) we headed off into the dark of night toward a private farm near Caboolture. I’d always wanted to film at a location with greenhouses so it was nice to finally make that happen. All moon light in the story footage is provided by a 1000 Watt Lupolux light at 2 O’clock, obviously the light would move with framing etc. I won’t lie it was amazing to finally get to film a big bonfire as well, another shot I’ve wanted to get for years! The only set specific gear was the Lupo and 2 x Fresnals for the greenhouses.

Dan’s Treatment:
Huge thanks to Frankie Nasso for booking someone to get the shots for us. Cheers!

Band Performance:
This part of the shot was logistically more intense than anything I’ve had to create thus far (bigger and better I hope). I recruited a close friend and very competent cameraman Adrian Pagano to assist on the night with lighting. Travelling further north, this time to Elimbah, we made our way to a HUGE private property and setup. The following lighting fixtures were used:
– 1200 watt HMI primary (lightstar)
– 1000 watt Lupolux
– 650 watt Lupolux
– 2 x 350 watt Fresnals (under Green GEL)
– 3 x Honda 20i Generators

Here’s a list of gear used of the shoot for anyone keen:
– Canon 5Dmk3
– Zeiss 35mm Flektagon f2.4
– Zeiss 50.m T*Planar f1.4
– Tokina 11-16mm f.28
– Genus Fader ND’s
– SmallHD DP4 EVF
– rigs
– Magic Lantern raw
– a shit ton of high speed cards
– home made snorii cam, the death rig
