Tim Mattia creates and directs four seperate unique films for Amp Rock TV – a series of films from innovative artists such as My Chemical Romance, Korn and Marilyn Manson.
This is the first series of 4 films and Tim is already in production on series 2. He’ll be shooting 4 series in total composing of 16 films all together. The idea is to create an exhibition later in the year.
” I wanted to shoot something that was purely artist led, something where a band couldn’t hide behind anything in front of the lens” explains Tim. ”
I wanted to see how lyrics could work as poetry and how artist’s would relate to their own work when it was stripped back to just the words.
“All the bands I’ve shot so far have been really keen to experiment with their own public personas, and I think thats the key to it. It’s a new way of fans seeing their favourite artists – there are moments of real vulnerability which, with global icons like Marilyn Manson, we don’t get to see very often”.
