Video: Hook Me Up

Video: Hook Me Up

A music video collaboration between a touring band and a dancing fan – made for $50, and ultimately featured on Australian national TV.

I met Etoile Marley at a show my band, The Ray Mann Three, played on our first visit to Melbourne. I planned this video with Etoile over the following months via email, and on our next visit to town, we shot the whole thing in an afternoon in her dance studio, on her little HD video camera (we didn’t even have a tripod – luckily, the camera screwed perfectly onto one of our drummer’s cymbal stands). The result: a no-budget music video which went on to be featured as “Indie Of The Week” on national broadcaster ABC TV’s legendary music show, “Rage”.
