It’s a weird experience to google the ARIA nominations to see which of your favourite bands got the nod and see your own name there. We’re surprised and super-chuffed to have been included in the Artisan Award nominations for Best Video this year for our work on Violent Soho’s ‘Covered In Chrome’ clip. The awards are announced on 26 Nov and we’ll be there for a giggle and a few bevvys (and the full expectation that the enormous fan bases of one of the pop nominees will win the day). It’s a publicly voted category so if you’re into the clip you can throw it a vote here.
It’s been one of our most requested behind-the-scenes explanations – how we pulled off the single-shot clip for Violent Soho’s Saramona Said. It was never going to be an easy story to tell within the average YouToober attention span but our best effort – Filming in the Fetal Position – is live now in the projects page.
Our latest project – a 10min micro-doc on how artists make a living in the music industry debuted today and is already getting plenty of attention from the media:

It’s been a pretty killer month for Brisbane bands. Worth clicking the link just to read lead singer Sam’s beautifully succinct description of the clip:
WARNING: Unintentional wet t-shirt action (SFW)
Our latest music video effort was an extremely satisfying one for Brisbane geniuses Ball Park Music. More info in the projects page

We were approached recently by Encore Magazine to pen a review of the Epic camera system. You can read the online version of Dan’s article here:
The last four years have seen a massive shift in the way we capture the moving image. With revolutionary cameras such as the Epic and Arri’s Alexa offering terrific options for capturing filmic imagery without prohibitive stock and processing costs. It’s also exciting to see the places a compact unit like RED’s Epic might appear in future productions. We’ve already found angles and mounting options we never thought would be possible – and we’ve only just begun.
