RA Live Sessions with Machinedrum

We have been collaborating with Resident Advisor for a while on various film projects. One of their latest ideas was the now established series RA Sessions, where they invite an artist to come and do a live performance in their trendy Haggerston office. 

Its always interesting to see what each artist brings to the session. Each time we wait until sunlight has passed and we use the streetlights as a backdrop for the film. We like to create strong backlighting in order for us to get as many lense flares as possible, which gives the series a distinctive style.

Between The Beats with Seth Troxler

When we teamed up with RA and started the ‘Between the Beats’ series a few years ago, we weren’t sure exactly what to expect. There are many tour videos out there and each artist has a different story but the subjects chosen by the RA editorial team have led us on some crazy journeys, and none more crazy (or exhausting) than a weekend with Seth Troxler.

Behind The Scenes At The Campus Pool Party Skate Edit

Clockwise Media may have been born filming club nights and music acts around Bristol but back in the day, it was all about skateboarding. We were stoked to get the chance to use our professional skills to make an old school skate jam video edit at the old Bishopswprth swimming pool in Bristol. The guys behind Campus skatepark have raised money and are about to turn this derelict building into a brand new indoor skate par so we went to tear it up before they tear it down!

Seventeen years ago we were all about the fisheye but these...
