This is the official music video for DJ Trax's Shady. To check out more info about his new album please go to: djtrax.wordpress.com

The thinking behind the video is of pain and relief and how we try to soothe ourselves in trying environments.

The location was an incredible creepy old hotel which is now anti-squat (Thanks Floor!). Someone had walked around the whole building with a marker drawing on the walls. It must have taken quite sometime as the place was big. Some of our crew thought that sort of action comes from sheer boredom and others that it comes from deeply suppressed anger. What do you think? Regardless all of us agreed that it added a huge mystery to our video and we jumped at the chance to include it as mise-en-scéne.

It was shot on Panasonic's HVX200 using P2 workflow. The room scenes were shot with the fixed lens of the camera. The scenes inside the box were show with Nikon lenses and the Redrock Micro 35MM adapter.
