Blame Candy 'Playtime!' by Gianennio Salucci
Gianennio Salucci directs a playful take on the "lockdown video" for Blame Candy's Playtime.
Instead of editing together self-shot content from friends and fans, Salucci has gone one step further and transmitted the snippets to a series of old TV's, sitting in the background of the band's performance.
Exhilarating, shiny and absolutely bonkers, the visuals are the perfect blend of nostalgia and futurism, and a genius way of taking the lockdown format to a whole new level.
We built a silver mylar tunnel and got a full frame fisheye on a Sony Venice, then our DoP went to town.
"Blame Candy are a kickass Glam Rock-ish band that wanted to make a COVID video for their new song. They happen to have a bunch of talented friends in the music industry and had them all submit self-filmed snippets of them performing the new song in true Blame Candy fashion.
"They came to me to edit together the snippets into a video, but I had the idea of using a bunch of old vintage TVs and a UHF transmitter I got off Ebay to literally broadcast their friends (and drummer who left town because of COVID!) to the TVs. We built a silver mylar tunnel and got a full frame fisheye on a Sony Venice and our DoP went to town.
"Somehow, this is one of my favourite videos I've made and also absolutely the least expensive."
