We Blame The Empire

When The Leaves Turn Red

music video / 2015 / 4:20 min

In 2015 I worked with We Blame The Empire to create a music video for their song When the leaves turn red. It’s a song about coping with death, lonliness and frustration. I wanted to express these feelings by placing the characters close to the edge of the frame with a lot of headroom. They should feel lost in the picture.

The team for this production was very small. It was basically me, the band and a couple of friends who helped on the set. Thanks again for that! Regarding equipment I used the Sony FS700 with an Odyssey 7Q external recorder to film in 2k Prores. Altogether we needed four days of shooting on two different locations.
