The Forest of Black Work

Powered by energy drinks and mainly dripping with sweat we clocked up roughly 1200 miles over 4 days filming Stone Sour on tour in June 2013. We were commissioned by Roadrunner to produce a promo video for the band - Corey Taylor from Slipknot's side project - for the new single 'Tired'. Briefed to capture the massive energy of the band and their fans as they played live across Europe we got our lenses steamed up and our shirts soaked through filming sweaty moshpits in dark and dirty venues in Hamburg and Prague as well as sets on the massive stages of the legendary Download festival near Nottingham and Seerock festival in Graz, Austria. Lucerna Music Bar, Prague is the winner of the most incredible venue to film in / slippiest ever venue floor / steepest ever load-in marble staircase award and we discovered that Heavy Rock / Metal crew and crowds are the nicest folk to work with EVER. The finished promo cuts a nice balance between the raw and intimate city venue shows and the sheer scale of the festival sets. We mixed up the formats with some RED, 5D, super slo mo F700 and of course a few rolls of 16mm on the beloved Bolex.
