Client: Leroy Lee
Australian artist Leroy Lee approached Ninja Milk to shoot a music video for ‘Mountain Song’ and set some strict rules for the clip’s content and aesthetics.
1. No performance of the song to be recorded. 2. No storyline apart from a character journey. 3. Make it look like a home movie from the 1970’s
We took Leroy’s guidelines and after further discussions with him decided to shoot entirely on Super 8 film with an old Canon home movie camera and decided on a “one man band seeks to escape the city” narrative for the clip.
With a crew of two, we set out and filmed the whole clip in about 4 hours on 8-mins of film which is a pretty impressive shooting ratio.
Looking forward to the next chance to shoot a project on Super 8 film. We still have some reels left.
