Dirty Goods -'Millionaires'

Sunday and yesterday I directed my first music video for Dirty Goods and enjoyed every minute of it. This was the band's first attempt at acting and they weren't entirely comfortable with it so I just tried to make experience as enjoyable as possible for them. The budget was absolutely zero and we used equipment borrowed from our fellow filmmakers as well as the crew and cast offering their time for free. It isn't going to be a masterpiece, but then we never intended for that anyway. Shot on a basic camera it will look a little grainy and the lighting is minimal. However, the intent of the video was for the band to experience making a narrative video, for Scratched Print and the band to work together as well as to make a video that would entertaining and a laugh for all involved. I think it will give people a chuckle and if released on youtube it will give the fans a chance to see the more comical side of the band.

It will look cheap and cheerful, but I think we will have a fun little video.
