Film: 'Journeys Start'
The Struts are a Virgin-signed UK-based rock band. They've produced their first album and developed a rich vibrant and harmonious sound with plenty of swagger. They wanted a short documentary to mark their origins and approach to collaboration. The challenge was to tell the story with candour and bite.
To create a Micro-rockumentary and profiles for Virgin-signed rock band to:
- explore how the band approach their work and how they started
- increase appeal, by revealing a creative and collaborative origin to a growing fanbase.
What we did
We created this micro-rockumentary for fans, for The Struts' website. It was a one-day shoot, a two-day edit and around two days' pre-production.
We visited the band's house in Derby and loved filming in their music room. We also filmed at their rehearsal space outside to add a flavour of live performance. We cut the whole piece together and fine-tuned with the help of the band's management.
Over 5,000 viewings without even being released. Exciting how it got out there - it was privately listed for months.
So great to work with people who so clearly know their destiny.
