Reminder Sigma's Colin Kennedy in Competition at Soho Shorts Fest This Friday
A reminder that as posted previously, Sigma Films' own Colin Kennedy has a music video in competition at the Soho Shorts Festival. Produced by Brian Coffey of Sigma, blogger/director/all round cool guy Colin Kennedy of course directed the wonderful music video You Can Do Athletics, BTW for the We are The Physics band. The video is an official selection, in competition that is taking place THIS FRIDAY, JULY 24 at the festival in London; ticket info here. VIDEO HERE ON YOUTUBE
As a reminder here is what a press release says about the video shot at FILM CITY GLASGOW last year.
The video pays homage to 50’s sci-fi film Attack of the 50ft Woman. Set in Glasgow it features the band members running between burning cars and dodging crumbling buildings as a giant goddess punches an exploding helicopter out of the sky in George Square before ripping apart the city. The video was shot in two days and had a six week post-production period, compositing around 75 effects shots comprising live action, hand-drawn graphics and rostrum camera footage. These combined to create highly stylised cinematic black and white sequences intercut with graphic novel elements. The video was achieved on a minimal budget thanks to the support of production company Sigma Films (Hallam Foe, Red Road) and a dedicated crew. It now competes with significantly larger budget productions in one of the countries most prestigious competitions for music video work.
FINGERS CROSSED, Sending our best to you Colin, Brian, the boys and all involved!
