Band Of Skulls 'Nightmares' by Greg Davenport
For Band Of Skulls' rocker Nightmares, Greg Davenport delivers this large-scale producion oscillating between a band performance in Essex and a narrative set 6000 miles away - making a seamless transition.
Shot in Dagenham and California's Lucerne Valley, Greg Davenport portrays his story-telling skills and performance director as he takes us through a turbulent relationship out in the desert...
"The band wanted to look at the idea of fear in an impactful, dreamlike way. And a combination of me having just re-watched Paris, Texas and also mishearing the lyric ‘desolate night’ as ‘desert at night’ I started to visualise a film about a couple in the desert.
"I wanted to investigate our fears within a relationship; fear of not being good enough, fear of not being able to provide or satisfy and conversely the fear of being trapped. Paranoia and jealousy can fester and cause people to act in ways they never imagined. The film had to feel at the same time completely authentic but also darkly surreal. Setting it in a small desert town only added to that.
"We shot in the Lucerne Valley outside of LA, getting to know the residents, using them as extras and coming and going in various locations. The band were shot at the old Ford factory site in Dagenham. About as close as we could get to the desert in London".
