The film is based on the Science Fiction movie genre particularly the UFO abduction story line. This was taken as a cue from the track being quite haunting. The story concept came from the idea, no-one fights an abduction-usually they let it happen. Another theory is when a person is drunk they are pliable and harder to injure due to being in a relaxed state. The story questions whether you would remember a UFO abduction if you had been drinking, or would you put it down to being a hallucination?
This video was shot over the course of 1 x 12 hour night. We had a rehearsal with our stunt co-ordinator and actor. And then on the night we had 2 x cranes, our actor rigged to one and the light source to another to achieve the shots. Using a combination of SPFX and VFX we achieved the final outcome.
The music has had over 99,000 views on YouTube alone, and has been published via Pitchfork and NPR.
The song has a really cinematic and also science fiction tone. We wanted to make a film that worked with this visually, but also had a humor to it.
