Hi guys, Nick here. Producing our own music videos has been a particularly enjoyable part of the last few months. We filmed some footage at Avon Valley Railway station when we had our photoshoot in March 2020 but honestly, I didn't have the skills to put together the kind of video I wanted to produce. I invested in some video editing software and began the time cosuming process of learning the techniques needed to pull off cool looking videos. Midnight Train the single didn't have an official video until September.
Once the first lockdown ended in June, myself and Eduardo got together and took a walk through the woods of Snuff Mills in Bristol with guitar, harmonica and a camera. By this time the second single Voodoo Blues had just come out and we wanted to film an acoustic duo version. We can't tell you how great it was to finally play together again! We filmed this performance and I set about finding some Voodoo related images to cut together with the performance. It is the first full length music video I've made and a great learning experience
The Rambler was to be the one where it all came together. Finally we could be a band again and at the end of July we were onto the third single. Shot in the live room of Factory Studios, Bristol we had the idea of a one shot video with the band moving positions throughout..very much inspired by the video for "Gloria" by THEM. It was such a great experience! We are so happy with the result. By this time we were filming a lot more behind the scenes stuff..
enough to make a "making of" video. Here it is.
In late September we shot the video for Malted Milk at The Kingsdown Vaults, Bristol.
We had lots of unused footage including these great shots of Eduardo filming his harmonica solo. Here's a split screen video alongside the finished video.
The video for Catfish took the longest to produce. We played our last gig together on 17th October and didn't meet again until March. Most of the videos took about a week to edit but honestly, I was working on this video for three months. It's probably the video I'm most proud of because of the amount of work that went into making such a visual video without being able to film any new footage.
I made a short film talking about the process .
I'm looking forward to making loads more videos in the future!
