VIDEO FEATURE FOLKS : WE HAVE THE NEW VIDEO FROM LPMC – MAIN STREET
It’s time for a new RGM video feature folks, today we have the new video from LPMC and their new video Main Street.
Here are a few words about the video, enjoy!👊
PART 1: THE STORY
“‘Main Street’ is the fourth single to be taken from LPMC’s debut album, ‘Providence’. The track is a love story between a father and son and it revolves around the son’s recollection of a conversation from 15 years earlier, back when he was a teenager.
However, the conversation took place on the day his Dad was made redundant from the steelworks – a place he’d worked ever since leaving school. The dad is giving his son advice about the realties of getting tied down to the streets of his hometown without first exploring what lies beyond it. Ultimately at this point, he feels like a failure.
The son doesn’t see his dad like that though. He sees him as an inspiration and a working-class hero who committed himself to a lifetime of self-sacrifice for the well-being of his family and actually the dirt under his fingernails is a badge of honor, not a confrontation with failure.
So the video lets us see whether the son took his dad’s advice and how life has turned out for him.”
PART 2: THE PRODUCTION
“The video is a proper DIY job!
I’ve got little to no experience of making videos but I’m not in a position to be able to hire a cast and crew to do it for me so deceived to have a go myself.
I think that has to be the way for independent artists these days.
Having said that, I managed to get Luke Nield to do the camera work and editing. Luke works of Sheffield United doing their behind-the-scenes stuff which is great and he brought a real cinematic feel to the film.
The main guy is played by newcomer Carl Hopwood. He’s never acted before but he’s a revelation and does a great job!
The supporting cast was made up of a handful of other friends and friends of friends who came down to be involved after a full day’s work. I’m very grateful to them all for believing in this project as much as I do and for wanting to be involved.” PART 3: THE SPIRIT
“The spirit of the track in a wider sense is meant to encapsulate the people of Rotherham. We may not have the shiniest town, but we have some of the kindest people.” “I always wanted this video to have depth and heart and pedal this idea that people round here will give you everything…even if they’ve got nothing.” I wanted it to pay tribute to the honest, hard-working, and loving community that exists in this town and represent the good nature and caring spirit of the people in this town, cos there’s always been a good soul in this town.”
