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
– Jag35.com rigs
– Magic Lantern raw
– a shit ton of high speed cards
– home made snorii cam, the death rig

Awaking Prophecy

Recently I had the chance to film the first video for Melbourne based Death Metal act ‘The Ophidian Ascension’. Making the most of Magic Lantern’s new raw capability, I decided to use it for the shooting and shot the whole production in a combination of 24fps and 60fps. All footage was captured on a 128gb KomputerBay memory card. Two versions are available below, YouTube and Vimeo. I recommend the Vimeo one if you want the true clarity and colour I selected as YouTube seems to mute some of the tones.
