As Lions 'Aftermath' by Shane Davey
Shane Davey's video for As Lions, fronted by former Rise To Remain singer Austin Dickinson, combines a pulsating performance with a narrative that highlights the work of medical emergency organisations in times of crisis. Two Red Cross workers walk through a disaster zone, looking for survivors - but unaware of a little boy, alive but buried under rubble...
"Aftermath is the lead track from As Lions’ debut EP, the new band from Rise to Remain frontman Austin Dickinson. I’d shot a couple of videos for Rise to Remain a few years ago and jumped at the chance to work with them on this exciting new project. I knew that Austin and the guys would bring a strong performance to the mix and shooting that part of it was pretty simple - we just had to point the camera in the right direction and hold on tight.
"For the narrative we talked around some post-apocalyptic scenarios but I couldn’t shake the feeling that for a lot of people around the world the apocalypse isn’t sci-fi, it is a daily reality. In the end we decided the narrative should pay tribute to those brave souls from organisations such as The Red Crescent, The Red Cross, The White Helmets, MSF etc.
"We shot performance and narrative elements on the same day and on the same stage at Shepperton. Top work by DoP Ahmet Husseyin and production designer Gemma Bailey for making foreground miniatures and polystyrene debris look so convincing."
