Mark Lediard's second video for rock outfit Glitter Machine is a fine follow-up to his first for Take The Pain, capturing a muscular band performance in a stylish studio set-up, and using in-camera FX that progress the optical themes of the first video. 

And Lediard adds a cast of colourfully-garbed characters, wigging out to the power-riffs of Black Bird, for good measure. 


"To really sell the strengths of the band and the performance we shoot this promo in black and white using a number of different stylistic techniques.

"Continuing the theme of distortions and optical effects from the last video for Take The Pain, we included a mirror image effect in portions of this video that reflect, duplicate and create unusual symmetries.

"To add some fun and weird craziness to the proceedings we’ll also shot a cast of extras in bizarre costumes doing their own thing in and around the band as they perform. Essentially a strange and weird party."
