SJW is a super talented rock band and is made up of members Simon james White (Bass/Vocals), Mitch Gasser (Guitar/Vocals) and Jerry Sadowski (Drums).
They asked if FX Media could produce the visuals to their reworking/cover of the classic track ‘Making Plans for Nigel’ (by XTC), and so began a collaboration of ideas and storyboarding between Simon and I.
The shoot day itself was a mad rush of band and storyboard filming, and we’re all so pleased with how the scenes pieced together in the final edit.
1) The film took place in the same venue that I filmed my very first effects-heavy short film ‘Dreamscape‘
2) Did anyone guess who the mysterious father figure in the film is? That’s right – Stuart from ‘Traffic Experiment’, a mutual friend of the band and I!
3) Simon also featured in another recent FX Media blog entry, as bass player in the photos of ‘The Fuse’ – check the photos out here
Here’s the film, we hope you enjoy it…
And here are a couple of group photos I took straight after the film, showing the band, actors and friends!
