Frightened Rabbit 'The Woodpile' by handheldcineclub2Frightened Rabbit 'The Woodpile' by handheldcineclubWhen things are not what they seem... Handheldcineclub deliver this hugely watchable drama - with a major twist - for Frightened Rabbit's The Woodpile. It's a one-shot video in a New York convenience store, and James Lockey from Handheldcineclub explains that the idea came after a conversation with Frightened Rabbit singer Scott Hutchison. "He was talking me through what the lyrics we're about, and the lyric 'a lit torch to the woodpile' stuck out as a really strong line, so we went laterally from there. "To me it's about how people jump in on things without knowing the facts, situations getting completely overblown and taken completely out of context – the mob mentality. Nowhere is this more present in the media and the everyday than in America where we filmed it."
