Alberteen - 'French Connection'

Alberteen - 'French Connection' 2015

 

Its the end of 2014 and Alberteen asks me if I'm interested in making another video for their song off their 2015 album 'Miss World' called 'French Connection'. They absolutely didn't want anything obvious!!!

 

So I went with the music, the bands innate style and the overall themes behind the whole album and came up with this Roald Dahl inspired visual cinema peice featuring the wonderful screen presence of the Actress Melissa Clements.  

 

Shot in and around Coulsdon, Surrey, I made this video. Featuring footage recorded by Alberteens Bassist Adrian Berry and highway footage by Gordon Warnecke.

Alberteen - 'Girl and a Gun'

 

This is a music video for the indie band 'Alberteen' for their song 'Girl and a Gun' from their 'Rhythm and Noir' album.

 

The band wanted a video that identified their style, whilst avoiding convoluted images of storytelling or flashy images directly derived from the lyrics of their song.  They also wanted a performance video that didn't focus too much on them. 

 

So taking what was available and their love of noir cinema, I shot this video around them focusing on their presence and style rather than their performances, and definitely no footage of neither a girl nor a gun.

 

Even with budgetary and shooting restrictions, Alberteen were extremely happy with the results.
