I’ve been working a lot lately with a band called New Volume, that have recently signed with Sumerian Records, and they have just released their debut single and the music video to go with it.

I directed the music video and shot it together with Ryan Prout (performance scenes) and Brendan Monteiro (make-out scenes). It involved a LOT of planning and working really long hours overnight to create sets and shoot everything on schedule but, together with the band, we all pulled our weight, drank loads of Red Bulls and made it happen.

All performance footage was shot at Belt Craft Studios on a Sony FS700 and the make-out footage was shot at a warehouse in Wembley, where we created the bedroom scene from scratch. I originally cast a different solo model for this video but we ended up going with the two models (Sarah Jackaman and Jesse Burgess) and they were both really professional ensuring that an awkward shoot wasn’t awkward at all.

The video was edited by Steven Contreras but I will be releasing a Directors Cut in the next month or so (when I’ve finished it) that will feature the original model (and edit sequence) as I imagined the video to be.

Absolute pleasure working with the guys on this and hoping it is just the start of many for us together.

I shot a great bunch of behind-the-scenes stills that I will be posting up soon to better show what the sets looked like and the work process involved
