DIY #1

There's DIY and there's DIY. I'm not much for bangs and whistles at the best of times but in shooting a music video for Kempsey's new DIY ep - recorded in the basement, mastered in a back shed - I like to think we took our production to a new level of 'stripped back'. T and I flew to Canberra for 3 consecutive night shoots with two 50mm lenses, two 5D bodies, two cheap on-camera LED lights and shot the living hell out of the city and a raucous crew of cohorts. It was exhausting but about as much fun as the lumbering juggernaut that is filmmaking can be. Messy, impulsive, joyous. Seize the night.
