DEVILSKIN - START A REVOLUTION - [Music Video] - Behind The Scenes

START A REVOLUTION

BUY on iTunes HERE!!!

First i want to send out a HUGE THANK YOU to DEVILSKIN, Our Crew, All businesses involved and NZ On Air for making this music video a reality.

NZ On Air did an awesome showcase of the band on their website as well:

We shot the video during the weekend of 12th & 13th of April 2014. Few weeks later thanks to our editor Kerri Roffio, our vfx team Liam Williams and Steve Haynes and the awesome color grader Alana Cotton from Images and Sound and on the 3rd of May we released the video to the world. It wasn't easy to pull it off with limited funds and time, but thanks to our awesome crew we did it and looks bloody awesome. 

The Band members are charging up for their up and coming NZ Tour and album release titled "WE RISE"


The Rock FM have done some awesome showcase of the band on their website:

Now the video is screening on NZ TV Channels such as Juice TV and C4. Also we have started submitting Start A Revolution to international film festivals world wide so stay tuned for more info by clicking HERE.
