Planning a new Video


So Joe The Dark Power Slatter and I have been planning a little video to accompany the new album. Here’s an extract of our email conversation about the project.

Joe Get thinking about some ideas!

I thought it might be cool to research some possible locations in and around london then visit them with a camera one weekend to scout ’em out.

Tom Well I fancy doing some relatively simple performance-footage videos, but steampunkified locations – maybe with a steampunked microphone to sing into…

Erm… I’m thinking of putting on my own gig, finding a suitably small and victorianish pub function room so that could be a thing to film.



or stuff.

Joe I’ll have a search for stuff too! What I thought we could do is stick a tall crazy steampunk tower into a suitable setting wiv computerz then film interiors in kew steam museum if they’ll let us.

We could have a shot of you with the in the foreground. You walk forward and as you approach it becomes clear the mic is in fact massive, like that forced perspective shot in airplane

Tom Are you sure about the mic gag though? Or is that a little too silly?

Joe Shut Up

Listening to the Beast of the Air. Should be possible to composite you onto the airship for some ‘searching’ shots.

Then I could make a sky kracken…….somehow……

Tom Random idea:

Talking heads. we could do some interview footage of you and then me talking about the video/music/steampunk. and then we could have some interview footage with Oldroid (maybe he talks via morse code and/or subtitles) talking about how much we torment him.


Joe Are you Drunk?
