Warmduscher 'Midnight Dipper' by Niall Trask
Niall Trask takes us behind the scenes of an amateur music video shoot, for Warmduscher's Midnight Dipper.
In an all too familiar turn of events (to those who have worked on music videos) we see hilarious prop failures, disgruntled band members and even a stomach-turning feast of Müller Corners and expired craft service meat.
The dated camcorder footage lends a great texture to the visual, as the on-screen director/ Jack of all trades uses a trusty forest location as the backdrop to the film.
And Niall Trask admits, this is more than a little bit autobiographical...
"This is a slightly meta retelling of me attempting to carve out a career as a director in the swamp of independent labels and next to nothing budgets, as the big commissioners rightfully reject my attempts to sabotage (the) artists' image...
"I pitched this to about 20 different bands, whilst my favourite band were writing their new album - which by the way is a corker.
"I’m currently genuinely hiking and camping solo around Norway. So hopefully I don’t stumble across a disgruntled black metal band."
