Whhhooo I’m so excited to share Boogieman by Desmond and The Tutus which is their latest music video and song off their album Enjoy Yourself. This dark and humorously creepy video is one that is very close to my heart because I got to co-art direct it with my dear friend and partner in Churche, Adi Koen. This was such an awesome experience, we got to build the props and put together some of the masks and costumes that are in the video.
So many talented people worked on this project Shane co-directed it with the super talented Greg Rom from Gentlemen Films, Joel Janse Van Vuuren and Anmari Honiball made all the awesome once-off costumes and Devin Toselli was the DOP. I’m so proud of you guys and high-5 to the Jameson INDIE Channel for choosing the best music video concept and for help making this project happen, you guys rule!
The video references the budget horror films of Nollywood and traditional West African garb and the idea centers around Desmond and the Tutus getting kidnapped by the some of the coolest monsters you’ll ever see. I won’t say any more, watch the vide below and if you’re keen to see some behind the scene shots I took on the day, just keep scrolling.
Go Desmond go! Continue Reading…
