Singer/songwriter Wayne Gidden commissioned Modus to make a music video for his song, ‘Anywhere But Here’ from his forthcoming album to raise his online presence.
‘Anywhere But Here’ is about Wayne’s friend who was sent to prison and turned his life around. This influenced the video’s concept. We had Wayne performing in a confined space to represent isolation.
The projections on the wall behind him show people who have been imprisoned in some way or another, fighting for a cause to make a difference. In the chorus these images were juxtaposed with footage from wars and other political events to emphasise the ‘Anywhere but Here’ line of the song.
This film has been positively received by the viewing public, and has become viral online. The song has now been released on iTunes.
I was incredibly impressed working with Modus. I had sent them my song, and it was clear from our initial meeting, that they had really listened. Their ideas were well conceived, and I immediately felt at ease, as I knew I was in good hands creatively and professionally. They worked diligently on the pre production, and kept me informed at all times. Mark and Max were clear and calm during the shoot and have a great working method. I was well directed during the whole shoot, and I’m seriously impressed with the results for my video ‘Anywhere But Here’. I would highly recommend Modus Film Productions, and I look forward to working with them again, in the future.
