Sad Night Dynamite 'Killshot' by Sam Davis
Sam Davis plays upon the strange world of CCTV and surveillance in his video for Sad Night Dynamite.
The video for Killshot explores how the use of surveillance can cast a guilty shadow on those it observes. As the narrative develops, the cameras start to seek out more and more obscurity in dark pockets of the city.
To bring the voyeuristic world to life, Sam played around with pre-programmed camera moves, super long zooms, face tracking and thermal imaging, combining elements of each to create a haunting and shockingly relevant snapshot of society.
Carting around a 12 ft CCTV pole and camera got plenty of strange looks.
"I got the idea after a chat in the pub with my mate who runs a CCTV company. For a while I'd been wanting to make a video around the eeriness and weirdness of CCTV, and Sad Night Dynamite were up for making something a bit different, so seemed like the perfect opportunity.
"It was a logistically interesting project, having to cart around a 12 ft CCTV pole and camera around South London got plenty of strange looks."
