Media students: Filmmaker’s scrapbook #1
Vasco Era’s Rock and Roll is the Only Thing That Makes Me Feel Good joined us at Campfire earlier on this year. The music video was produced by Plot and shot around the inner suburbs of Melbourne, Aust. Here’s a quick glimpse into the making of a music video.
Where did the idea for the song come from?
Sid O’Neil (vocals/guitar): The idea came from me standing at a waterfall called Iguazu falls which is supposed to have all of these positive effects on your psyche. It really did work but then I still felt like something was missing. I got back to the town and listened to roadrunner, by Jonathan Richman and realized that i made me feel better than anything nature can provide.
And the music video, who came up with the concept?
The filmclip was our bassist Ted’s idea. He just wanted to have lots of things thrown at my face because he is my brother and brothers like that sort of thing.
…remembering to clean-up at the end of the day :)
