Catfish & The Bottlemen 'Homesick' by Jon Stone

Jimmy Brown - 23rd Apr 2015

Jon Stone assembles a collection of live photographs chosen from over 2000 took by NME photographer Jordan Curtis Hughes of Catfish & The Bottlemen and turns in this hugely affective flipbook-style video for their single Homesick.

JON STONE

"The band came to me with a very vague idea of a flipbook video - having worked together on a whole host of projects together they trusted me to go my way with it. Luckily they had recently taken photographer Jordan Curtis Hughes (NME) out on a few dates and I had just completed a multicam shoot of their show at Glasgow Barrowland, so we had plenty of material to utilise.

"Jordan sent over 2000 images to me via terrible airport wifi in Helsinki and I began assembling. I wanted to get a sense of their live show without relying too much on actual footage, so the staggered shutter look is all from burst mode raw images, and the band had a great collection of behind the scenes images to rely on.

"A nightmare to get past the Harding test eventually managed to get approved on the fourth attempt to create a visually interesting and different perspective of the band's personality and live show."
