Pinky Beecroft & The White Russian's new music video, "Rock Boots". You might know Pinky as the lead singer of Machine Gun Fellatio and he also wrote the award winning song for The Whitlams, "No Aphrodisiac".
This music video was launched at the Bendigo Hotel in Collingwood and also shown a couple times at the final Roller Derby match with the Victorian Roller Derby League vs Seattle's Rat City Rollergirls on Saturday 19 November 2011 at Melbourne Showgrounds.
It has been my biggest music video project so far, with the band, two roller derby teams, makeup girls and a bunch of cheering extras! It could not have been achieved with the the help and assistance from the VRDL (Victorian Roller Derby League). It was so great to have some of the lovely Roller Derby stars involved in this clip including B-Banger, Swish Cariboom, Acheron Styx and Boom Crash Oprah.
The video footage was all shot in one day at Puckhandlers in Reservoir with my assistant Paul Griggs helping out with alternative camera angles. The equipment used were a Canon 5D Mk II and a 7D with a variety of lens from 10mm fisheye to 200mm telephoto. All of the video editing was performed by myself with the help of Pinky on my iMac using Final Cut Studio.
Also here are a couple behind the scenes photographs of the video shoot captured by Paul Griggs and Laura Nerina Andrau:
