From an article in MVOD.TV Thomas Bryant talks about his new music video for Kidwise
Q?: Could you tell us more about the video ? How and where was it shot ?
"The film was shot around Manchester at the end of September. We had a small but incredible crew that really stuck with it through the early starts and late finishes. Lighting and atmosphere are very important to me so I’m always trying to shoot in that quiet time before sunrise and after sunset."
Filming at locations in Runcorn and Huddersfield, Director Thomas Bryant and DOP Victor Seguin captured the action using ALEXA as events unfolded during the two day shoot in mid September.
Q?: What were the most challenging aspects of the production ?
"I think that depends who you ask! Of course for me casting and locations. We were casting and location scouting right up to shoot day. Some things went very much in our favour (we found CJ the day before the shoot). So there were plenty of good surprises. It was the first opportunity I had to work with DOP Victor Seguin who was phenomenal and really involved from an artistic point of view. Marine at RODS was incredible, she really believed in the film and put so much energy and enthusiasm into the project. I think without her it would not have made it off the ground. Eileen and Ben at 422shoots in Manchester were excellent pulling all the pieces together and making it a reality."
