The Arkells – Whistleblower
Director: Jared Raab
Producers: Peter Dreimanis & Josh Warburton
DOP: Adam W. Crosby
Shot using N3D technology from Aircord Japan, the production for Whistleblower was broken up into two distinct sections. First the band’s performance was shot, with four separate cameras (front, back and sides) on a completely black background. The video was then edited using all 4 angles simultaneously, in order to be viewed on the 4 sided pyramid as a 3D object. The second shoot came after this editing stage, and involved a circular dolly, which was perfectly timed around the pyramid to coincide with the edit. The final video is comprised of one single shot, dollying around the pyramid and the majority of effects you see were achieved by cuing lighting effects behind and underneath the clear pyramid. Old televisions, bare light bulbs and flickering fluorescent tubes were used, along with a rack of smaller spot lights, constructed especially for the shoot by Cinematographer, Adam Crosby. There was also a series of blue LED lights placed under the pyramid that could be cued for an added “star field” effect.
