Man and The Echo came to us with an exciting brief “we want a music video set in a 70’s kids TV show gone wrong, with modern bits that look really weird.” It sounded like an exciting challenge! As a collaborative team, we worked on the idea with the band, to come up with something quite strange but that also flowed and had context. The video follows a TV show set in the 70’s that drastically goes wrong due to interference from futuristically frightening glitches of the band members and a group of misbehaving puppets who are completely un-politically correct. The video is a satirical look at the 70’s and it’s un-PC nature, from outrageous behaviours to the unnecessary hair.
Shot on a mix of 4K and SD VHS, it was certainly an adventure and strange workflow but we wanted the style of the footage and video to match the band’s requirements and brief. The music video was extremely well received by the band who will be releasing their album early 2016.
“It’s absolutely brilliant. Thanks so much to all of you for working so hard on everything from costumes to the editing. Nice one!” Fush
We like to select the bands and artists we work with carefully and base our ideas and treatments on their music, style and personalities. We are able to work with band managers, record labels, unsigned and signed bands and musicians who require music video services. We work locally to Manchester, nationally across the UK and globally when budget and the need requires. We love to come up with new ideas and concepts when we hear new sounds, so please get in touch with an example of your work or link to your music if you would like to work with us.
