THE YOUNG WILD have unveiled a fresh new music video for their single "Not A One" today. CLICK HERE or below to watch the video, which was directed by the band's frontman Bryan B William. For more about the making of the video, see below for a quote from Bryan:
"The original concept was to put the whole band in a line and shoot a seamless performance in black and white with no cuts. I wanted to create a performance environment where we didn't feel we'd be imposed upon by the camera, to look uninterrupted and alone. We always entertained the idea of moving the camera around but it wasn't until the week of production we really solidified our decision to put the viewer in varied proximity to the band.
Another layer to the piece was that we shot most of the footage at 12 fps which doubled the playback speed. You see that the bands movements are very rigid and almost violent at times. Much like old Charlie Chaplin films or the animation style of Tim Burton comes to mind (The Nightmare Before Christmas, Corpse Bride). Hype Williams was also an influence as he really championed this technique in the video for Busta Ryhmes 'Gimme Some More'.
We're simply trying to create as many layers as we can in our work. It's up to the viewer/listener how deep they want to go but there's a lot more than what's on the surface with our music and hopefully everything that goes along with it carries that same ideal."
