Django Django 'Storm' by Focus Creeps

Jimmy Brown - 13th Apr 2012

After Spector's Chevy Thunder and their run of Arctic Monkeys vids, Aaron & Ben of Focus Creeps now give Django Django the benefit of their coolness, with a solar-tastic video for Storm.

After Spector's Chevy Thunder and their run of Arctic Monkeys vids, Aaron & Ben of Focus Creeps now give Django Django the benefit of their coolness, with a solar-tastic video for Storm. The look is genuinely experimental, taking vintage tube video cameras and messing/distressing with their output, to create something strange and wonderful - and works very well with an excellent folky-psychedelic song. Focus Creeps: "We had been sitting on a concept to exploit tube camera's irregularities. Nick has two cameras from the 1984 Olympics. Travis took a screwdriver to the guts of one of his own, there's three individual RGB tubes like a guitar amp and you can offset them, etc... "I have some consumer tube cameras by Fischer and Canon that have internal effects. For the shoot we pushed the cameras as far as we could. Nick is a grip by day so he did some pretty crazy HMI lighting set-ups inspired by various old films. The idea was mixing eras of technology so it didn't come off too retro. I think the cameras are rated at around 20 ISO, so they need torrential amounts of light."
