Outlandish Video takes a sensitive and authentic approach to film making. Be it capturing a musical moment that audio alone just cannot portray, or illustrating a project for which the visual is paramount, Outlandish Video is committed to communicating these ideas in an effective and artistic medium.
Outlandish Video specialises in music videos of the creative process. Be it live or in the studio, the videos created are designed to capture the essence of what makes a band unique and communicates something of the performance that only the visual can achieve. For those bands that need to be seen as well as heard, having appropriate video with quality sound and sensitive construction can be invaluable when booking into venues and attracting new fans.
I have produced many music videos for the band I work closely with, Groanbox, as well as one off productions for various other groups. In 2011 I was involved in designing and executing a project called Gig 365, during which I accompanied accordionist and composer Michael Ward-Bergeman as he endeavoured to play at least one gig a day, every single day of that year. As well as being a part of the creative planning process I took extensive video footage which is currently in post-production with the view to making a feature length documentary.
If you have a project that needs video work, be it a simple band shoot or a more unusual proposition, I'm always open to new ideas and interesting collaborations. Feel free to get in touch and talk over your designs and how we can bring them to fruition with a dynamic yet appropriate approach.
