When these guys want a music video, they want a mini movie. There's no "Day for night" in this film.
All shot at night in a graveyard with 6000 watts of lighting. For the moon we built a 3000 watt light tree 15' high.
The coffin and gravestones were built by our set designers Chris and Marie Hamilton and their superb art skills.
The majority of the set is in St. Helenas Episcopal graveyard. A historical graveyard from 1791. Portions were in a backlot of another location where we could build a graveyard scene with the freedom to dig without destroying sacred property.
Storyboard was inspired by the feel of "oh brother where art thou"
This band is nuts, you can find that out by watching this music video and watching the guitarist launch himself into the drums. The singer get buried in a coffin, and the guitarist play his solo up in a tree.
Even the undertaker is "INTO IT"
