Queen of Cyprus

Over the weekend we had a last minute request from the guys in North Lakes to get a video shot for their newest single 'Queen of Cyprus'. They were releasing the new tune the following Tuesday which was to be released on Exclaim.ca and CBC, so they wanted a video to go along with the release.

A few ideas were tossed around for locations (a pizza shop, a baseball diamond, etc) but we ended up at the local Farmers Market on Saturday morning. I had a friend, Kyle Gallagher of House-Front Productions, come and do sound for the video and I'm thrilled with how everything turned out.

You'll notice a distinct effect in the video that makes it look a little "aged" almost. It's a trick called "lens whacking"  where you actually remove the lens from your camera and just hold it in front of where it attaches. The light leaks in and you get some pretty amazing shots. It worked perfectly for the style I was going for with the guys.

So without further adieu, Queen of Cyprus by North Lakes.
