Client: Jimmy Regal and the Royals
Brief: Blues band 'Jimmy Regal and the Royals' wanted a dark and dingy feel for their single 'Sun's gonna rise.' With a very limited budget, the band managed to secure the basement of the Constitution pub in Camden Town for free as they had performed there previously.
Additional footage: Cutaway shots from stock footage by Motion Array and an additional editor, Sky Murphy.
Treatment: The shoot was challenging as the lack of headroom in the venue meant limited options for lighting; the pub upstairs was open to the public, so due to noise restrictions the drummer had to mime; the position of smoke alarm meant that we were unable to use the smoke machine on stage. The shots were mostly filmed using a 3 axis motorized gimbal providing smooth motion shots, and lighting effects using a Boltzen fresnel LED.
