This was a passion project we did for the all-female, 7-piece hardcare metallic band Gown. Singer and bassist Nelle approached Mike and Teddy with a song and a concept which we starting hashing out in the spring of 2018. With no budget but plenty of inspiration and energy, we put together a storyboard and wrangled 7 competing schedules into 3 shoot dates. Everything was shot at the Eno River and Falls Lake in and around Durham, NC. The video was edited and released to go along with their debut EP "Skin."
