Banks takes us on a tour of the band’s house – actually production company Shameless’ office – with some excellent work by DP Thonke and Thomas English’s AR rig.
“I’ve worked closely with the band for a few years now producing content documenting their progress, so it was amazing to finally get to do a proper video,” explains Franklyn.
“The idea came about from Rob in the band really, in which we’re floating around a weird house party where everywhere you look someones doing something strange. So with the floatyness came the amazing AR rig and Mr Thomas English. We wanted to nudge it a little further than the run of the mill house party so we shot it at Park Village, home of Shameless. In the forty years that it’s been going literally thousands of shoots must taken place in the studio but this is the first (and I’m told last) to take place in the other rooms around the building.
“The band’s performance is my favourite bit. It’s kind of an ode to the Weezer Sweater Song vid, which myself and the band are massive fans of…”
