Mike Waters – Gambling Man

About the filming for his single ‘Gambling Man’ Mike Waters said, “My very good friend Oli Sansom (An award-wining photographer) and I had wanted to make a music video together for a while. We had three requirements: It had to cost next to nothing (we had zero budget), needed a fast turn around, and we wanted it to be something we could both be proud of. It took many rehearsals and run-throughs…But it was definitely worth it. When we felt we were happy with the test takes, we turned our pockets out, hired a camera, set up some lights, and spent the day doing take after take. It was a hell of a lot of fun.”

Drawcards – We Are The Future

The clip for the ‘We Are The Future was directed and filmed by Thomas Coutts, with vocalist of Drawcards, Paul Durkin, playing location scout. “I was scouting a location for weeks for an area that had a big enough open space with a thick, dusty, almost powdery surface. When hope of finding the perfect location was almost spent, I stumbled across an area near a construction sites which was a combination of fine mineral sands and crushed concrete fines on the surface, with native forest and a beautiful sunset as our backdrop. The dust (probably not the best for our health), combined with the forest backdrop and great lighting, both natural and artificial, made for some pretty spectacular footage on a very low budget.”

Tiger Choir – Shani

The ‘Shani’ video, according to Hobart’s Tiger Choir, takes “inspiration from karaoke stock footage, and the neon and night of Blade Runner & Wong Kar Wai, the Shani video is a no budget (almost) 3D Chinese karaoke singalong made with the help of friend Thom Hyland (Ivy St).”

Shamir – Darker

Shamir has shared a new music video for ‘Darker,’ a song taken from his debut release Ratchet. ‘Darker’ is a change of pace from his bouncy singles ‘On The Regular’ and ‘Call It Off,’ and showcases the Las Vegas native’s more spiritual side: “It doesn’t get darker, unless you expect it to.” In the music video, Shamir is alone in the Joshua Tree desert, singing as night magically turns into day into night again. Anthony Sylvester, who directed the video, used high-flying drones to film the entire performance.
