Short Production Films have just released their first music video. From the Vimeo page:
Sailor’s Ode is a music video/short film for Amy G. Dala, a four piece from St. John’s, Newfoundland. Sailor’s Ode is available on their self-titled debut album available July ’09.
Sailor’s Ode was written and directed by Alex Mugford. With Brad Batten behind the camera and a team of producers made up of best friends, Sailor’s Ode is sure to make you rock the fuck out.
The video has an interesting visual style, sort of like the cut scenes from an old gangster video game, with dialogue appearing on the screen, the frame always moving, sometimes closing in on a certain area for emphasis.
Done on a budget of love and free time, the cast and crew of the Sailor’s Ode music video manage to deliver what at times feels like a full scale cinematic experience thanks to their obvious commitment to realizing Mugford’s vision. You get the impression that this is more than just a production company — this is a team.
I’ll be keeping my eye on Short Production Films. I’m definitely looking forward to seeing more of what they have in store.
