Check out the new music video for The Last Shadow Puppets’ “Everything You’ve Come to Expect” here: http://eycte.it
Shot in one day at Point Dume in Malibu, we can safely say that Alex Turner and Miles Kane are still alive. Creative director Saam Farahmand of London’s Black Sheep Studios collective came up with this concept that demanded the full participation and trust of the band. Buried up to their necks in the sand, our crew made sure that all safeties were in place so we could pull off having the waves crashing against their heads. Working within the California Coastal Commission’s parameters, we built a support structure that allowed the artists the easy ability to stay seated while also giving them the flexibility to get up if the waves came too close or they needed to vacate their performance.
Under the watchful eye of Chung-Hoon Chung, renowned Korean cinematographer famous for the film Old Boy, our steadicam operator Cedric Martin’s carefully choreographed movements created a visually stunning and poetic piece sure to call all the right attention to The Last Shadow Puppets first album since 2008. Also worth noting is the use of 16mm film to give the video clip its distinct look. Casting was provided by Shane Liem, a collaborator of CD Farahmand. Her dedication to finding the right people, notably dancer Michelle Dawley, for this project was unparalleled.
Stay tuned as this was one of two videos produced by Black Sheep Studios for the new TLSP record. The album drops on April 1, 2016.
