David Knight - 8th Aug 2017

Everything Everything have created a performance video with a strong visual twist, working with DoP and longtime collaborator Dave Tree.

The band were shot performing within a cube composed of giant video screen walls, supplied by audio visual company 80six - and the effect is stunning. Lead singer Jonathan Higgs, who regularly directs the band's videos, hands over those duties to Tree - but takes over responsibility for the edit, and builds an intense, multi-sensory experience.   

DAVE TREE:

"This was my fourth video with the band. The first three I DOP'd working closely with Jon as director. This time the band asked me to take the lead in directing too. I love working with the band and their team at Sony. The treatment was two stickmen drawings and two sentences. One being 'This will be awesome!'. That's a rare level of trust that makes creating something like this a joy. 

"I was extremely excited about using these massive LED screens as light sources. Jack and his team at 80six were incredibly supportive in making this video screen box reality."
