Susy Blue music video launch

November 6, 2011

A while back, my blog Paper-Deer was offering a lucky Melbourne musician a chance to score a free music video thanks to an offline creative group I was part of called Motive Melbourne. A very talented music artist by the name of Susy Blue won the competition, and we began work on the film clip. This was a couple of months back, and many chai lattes ago…

Meeting up at various coffee houses around Melbourne, we came up with an initial concept for the clip. We put our heads together to figure out the venue, props, extras and funding, and somehow it all came together. The majority of the video was shot in Melbourne’s gorgeous venue The Toff in Town, and the extras were mostly friends of the crew who all happened to just have super awesome costumes in their wardrobes. I was briefly in the clip (look for the orange haired girl with a Bowie-esque star on her face) as well as taking on the production manager duties for the day… which mostly translated to yelling orders at extras and eating lots of cucumber sandwiches when I could. (Photos from the shoot here.)

Working with Susy was amazing – it was rad having such an appreciative musician who helped out with the creative side as well as forked out some of her own cash (for things like her own band’s costumes and catering). A huge thanks to everyone at Motive Melbourne and to all the extras for helping out. I’d definitely put my hands up to work on another music video again!

The Melbourne film clip launch was yesterday at The Evelyn, but if you missed it check out the video here:
