My first official music video in a while, “New Day”, taken from the new Handbook E.P. “Reminiscence“, out now on Cascade records.
I’ve made two music videos for Cascade previously, Repeat Pattern “Fuck But Beautiful” and Fitz Ambro$e “FAIFF”, so I reached out to Handbook after seeing a tweet from Cascade records promoting the EP and he chose “New Day” as the track he wanted a video for with the brief “I love rivers, countryside and birds/insects so that would be a great focus. Probably difficult, but something ant based would be dope.”
I love this kind of brief as it gives me the amazing freedom to try out ideas and play with effects I otherwise wouldn’t have the opportunity to, even better when the music is as good as this.
Some fun involving a borrowed Garmin Virb 360 (Thanks Documentally:)camera, lots of tests, waiting for the English weather to play ball to get the clouds I wanted and a lot of meticulous masking and editing and voila…..
I really love the happy, uplifting quality of much of Handbook’s work, do yourself a favor and check out his other stuff:-
