Foo Fighters Wasting Light Music Videos

I was given the opportunity to direct an official Foo Fighters music video as part of the "This Video Sucks" contest: bcove.me/l1i2plo1

With a small budget and a very short time frame the cast, crew and I produced this video. Shot on the 5D and 7D, under the Williamsburg Bridge in Brooklyn, NY and at Parlay Studios (parlaystudios.com) in Jersey City, NJ.

The story begins with a man leaving a bar at 3am. A crazy adventure ensues as the man tries to make his way home that night.

Video premiered on Fuse on April 15, 2011 during the Foo Fighters music video takeover: youtu.be/JP8yvLWttk0

It premiered online May 10, 2011 on foofighters.com: foofighters.com/us/videos/arlandria-video-sucks-contest-directed-nicholas-spaventa
