In mid-2012 I worked with director Clint Lewis of Red Tape Pictures to shoot the Kilbey / Kennedy music video “For all that we lack, we carry on our backs”. The project was unique in that director Clint Lewis was given the freedom to create the film clip first, with Steve Kilbey (The Church) and Martin Kennedy (All India Radio) writing the music thereafter to match the vision.
Steve Kilbey was particularly impressed by the outcome of the project – a great testimonial for all the hard work put in from the director, cast and crew:
…a beautiful video. one of the best. it was so easy to write to this. poignant. moving. sad. nostalgic. mysterious. an absolutely top drawer video. please lets do some more.
The music video clip can be viewed via the Vimeo embed above. NB: The disappearing head, balloons, charred landscape, telescope and beach scenes (excluding the ECU of the protagonist awakening at 2:35/2:42 which was my personal favourite shot from the 1st unit shoot!) were 2nd unit shots by a different shooter and are not my own works.
