Gravity Circus 'Shuteye' by Rob Ulitski
Promonews's very own Rob Ulitski pays homage to lo-fi home videos in his video for Dutch duo Gravity Circus.
His video for Shuteye captures the band's Ken Luske and Jimmy Onibi Nagaura performing the song whilst in lockdown, with from friends and fans providing additional phone lipsync footage.
"When I first heard the track, I proposed we make something really lo-fi and 90's home video-esque," says Rob. "Jimmy and Ken are based in Amsterdam, so it was obvious we would need to shoot everything remotely, and on the simplest setup we could.
"Using Discord to communicate and a rough shotlist of some ideas, we shot (remotely) throughout the day inside Ken's bedroom studio and garden, with one DSLR camera and a couple of small lamps. The aesthetic very much lent itself to distorted textures and VHS-style blur and artefacts, so I think that shooting style worked really nicely within the concept.
"Both Jimmy, Ken and all of the other contributors were amazing to work with - shout out to those who all learned a lip sync with roughly half-hour notice!"
