Come, my children, and wallow in the depravity of another new Rock TV!
(if you’re having trouble with the video freezing, just pause the player and let the video load entirely)
Doing a Halloween video was something new for our team, and the writing team had a blast poking fun at all the typical conventions of horror movies. I particularly enjoy Ted’s performance as The Old Man At The Gas Station who warns the reckless teens of imminent danger.
Shooting this video was a real chore because of the amount of lighting setups needed, but the performances were great, and in the end the video is better for having taken our time. All the driving and exterior shots of the cabin were shot while hanging out at my grandparents’ cabin back in August. Another tidbit worth noting is that the entire production of this video was videotaped for a making-of-Rock TV documentary that we’ll finish up with in early 2008. Stay tuned for more details on that…
In the end, my favorite bits from this video:
-The “teen” dialogue (“Spliff me some Twizzlers.” “Crush on these, dude!”)
-Kevin’s hypnotically bizarre performance as the Exposition Guy, there to provide pointless backstory.
-Ted’s “best supporting actor” line.
-The final shot, which is easily the darkest ending in the 8-year history of Rock TV.
Enjoy – we’ll have another new one finished in just a couple weeks!
