New music video from The Rasmus
Axel Söderlund, A-lite, from Luleå, worked as DoP (director of photography) during the making of the music video. Here he gives Film Arc the inside scoop from the set. The name of the single is still confidential.
Behind the production are the companies: Village Road Film (Umeå) and Helsinki Pump.
Director is Owe Lingvall and Production Coordinator is Mirka Rantanen. The video was shot with a RED-camera. This is the second collaboration between Director Owe Lingvall and the Finnish supergroup The Rasmus. Owe directed the video for the single 'Justify' in 2008.
- When I spoke to the band on the set, they told me that 'Justify' was their all time favourite amongst their own videos, says Axel.
The Rasmus new video was shot in Helsinki, during one very long day, with a Finnish crew except for Director and DoP. The whole music video was shot against green screen which will be replaced with an empty skyscraper filled city.
- At this stage we cannot give away much details concerning content. But the basic idea is that the artists move through this empty city, changing their surroundings in different ways. But we did a lot of walking. And to achieve this in a studio without having to light enormous areas we bought a treadmill which was modified and painted completely green, it worked like a charm, except for a few stumbles here and there. So if anyone is in need of a green treadmill, you can rent it from Village Road, says a smiling Axel.
The postproduction will be handled in Umeå during the summer and the release will be in August.
