GINGER - Gardens - Indie Music Contest April 2020
We recorded Gardens at a small production studio in Edinburgh called Lost Oscillation and the video was filmed from the living room window of our lead singer's flat in the city centre of Glasgow during self-isolation. We'd initially planned on pursuing a totally different video concept out on location around Glasgow before the pandemic began to spread in the UK. Robbie began to show symptoms and followed government guidelines to self-isolate, which put any plans of a location shoot out the window. Lockdown was implemented but we still needed a video, so Robbie asked Alex, Claire and Garry (who are all flatmates) to walk round on their daily allowed exercise and play their instruments in my front garden while he filmed from the window. Robbie interspersed some film of my garden, plants, and the neighbour's cat, added vintage-style film reel effects, and we had a video.
