In the spring of 2019 percussionist Yan Westerlund (Quetico) approached us about doing a video for a 5 minute instrumental track on his upcoming solo debut album. The idea centered around a crazy game of basketball that transitioned into a dream sequence and then back again. Performance artist Ginger Wagg was a central part of Yan's idea. For the dream sequence, we ended up rigging a Source Four from a 15' goal post and pumped in some haze. The rest of the video was shot mostly handheld in the hope it would give an in-game feel. You can check out the full album "Man Alone" wherever you stream your music.
