More "Cut Copy"

"bright like neon love"
Hey Mal, A good friend of ours, the great director Kris Moyes, directed our latest video, Going Nowhere and we think it's really something special. We didn't have much time to get it all done so Kris had the idea of doing the entire ideo in one shot so there was no need to edit it afterwards. This seemed simple enough but then he had the even crazier concept of having a guy do an interpretative dance while watching us play on TV. Tricky, since we've now got two rooms...totally different and the camera has to 'go through the TV'.

So, a day after our Homebake Festival appearance...and feeling rather worse for wear...we did the shoot in a converted art gallery in North Sydney. Crew were running around like crazy, it was 33 C outside and the poor cameraman had to wear this huge brace with the camera to be able to run between the two rooms in one clean swoop.

But after 12 hours of shooting and 7 full takes, Kris had his video and the weeks of preparation of putting together the impossible came to an end. We want to thank Kris and the guys for all their efforts and really want to push this video out there to as many people as possible.

Alas...we'll be posting it online very soon but if you go to...

As a thank you. we've got copies of our Radio 1 Mix CD to send to those who vote.

Cheers
Cutters

5 more sleeps until I see them.

On a semi-related note, I just found out ‘The Family’ has a spiffy website with one of those VR panoramic things so you can have a look around. Check it out:

(Go to ‘Inside,’ then ‘Inside Me.’)

Looks pretty sweet, huh? It looks even better when you’re chopped. Should be going this Friday, as long as the bastards let me in. (They’re notorious fuckheads about ever-changing dress codes.) Boy am I ever excited. Going to be a fucking great weekend.
