Production Company: Zebrafish Media Director: Lewis Cater Producer: Alasdair Mitchell
Lewis Cater recreates the thrills of appearing on old-time pop TV for Dead!’s furiously rocking Up For Ran$om. The band are (mostly) dressed in matching blue suits, and their performance is captured on vintage cameras to recreate that sense of what a TV pop show looked like before everybody could watch everything, right now. The band’s relentless aggression means this nostalgic approach has a modern bite.Lewis Cater: “We shot the video on an old 3 tube Ikegami camera that was frequently used on the show. I also called upon operator Dicky Howett – a TOTP veteran himself – to help achieve that authentic and nostalgic look.”
