Directed whilst working with Ed Emmerson as Type2error. The band members were actually electrocuted on set. It isn't faked. We used those exercise kits which tense your muscles for you. With a little adaptation we were able to attach them to each of their limbs and rigged them all to a series of controls just off camera.
The idea was to puppeteer them and try to control their movement against their will. It's an idea I had floating around for sometime before we made this, luckily we're all good friends, I'm not sure I'd have been allowed to do this to anyone else.

Hmm…it looks like things are taking a while to load. Try again?
