WE PREMIERE THE NEW VIDEO FROM GOD FROM THE MACHINE – THE RIVER

It’s another RGM video premiere, today we have the new video from God from the machine and their new video The River. 

Here are a few words about the video, enjoy!πŸ‘Š

“Our video for The River was directed, filmed and edited by Sam, with additional idea development and post production advice coming from Joe. Additional camera work on the shoot came from Emerson D’Cruze-King. Assistance with booking the location came from Kerry Wheeler. Sam: ‘For this video I wanted to focus primarily on performance and camera movement to convey the themes and moods presented by the track. We filmed at 50fps with the track being played back at x2 speed and then slowed the footage in post to 25fps.

This created the desired effect of the performance having a slow motion dream-like quality with the playing and vocals syncing up to the track at normal speed. I wanted to keep the lighting set up minimal for this to really draw the audiences attention to our performance and not so much our environment. Many for the shots were lit primarily by a side light to cast shadows across the subject with a key above, and an additional light against the wall in the background to provide depth to the shots. Presenting the video in monochrome felt like the best way to support the themes presented in the lyrics, while also being a visual choice we had yet to explore for this project’”
