This production came into reality when I realized that I always had wanted to shoot a music video on 16mm. When I talked to Nigel Scott (the father of the lead singer of RKO- Wesley Scott) back in July 2008 at a church picnic, I knew I had found the band to make a video with. I shot this video on the seat of my pants through 3 night shoots after work and an evening. We started about 11:30pm after my work and ended up going to 2am for 3 nights. We shot the main scene featured in the video at smith bros foundry on an evening in late august. I thank Christopher Ruffell who's HD footage makes up the majority of the video. All of the HD was shot by Chris and all the 16mm I shot. I was 18 at the time I made this video and discovered just how crazy it was to work with a band, and how unreliable bands can be. All in all though, it was a great experience, and I learned LOTS from it!
