A Note about the filming of this Video...
"Soul for Sale" was filmed over the course of one day (something like 5 hours total) at a recording studio in the San Fernando Valley. Although I can't tell you the name of the studio, I can give you hints. It is owned by one of the biggest Rock Stars in the world who has an affection for recording to Analog Tape. Look closely in the video for clues (the shot of the row of Guitars in the control should be a dead giveaway).
Anyway, it was a pretty painless shoot. The band setup in the Live Room and played back to the song.
Most of the shots in the video are of the band jamming out other things BESIDES the song "Soul for Sale". If I remember correctly they only played along to the song 2-3 times. Maybe less. But it worked as my idea for the tune was really NOT to sync them up to what is actually being heard over your speakers. I wanted the visuals to be much looser. I believe the only part that was semi-synced up to the tune is Harry playing that opening drum fill...everything else is pretty much winged.
I wanted to show the band outside of their usual comfort zone - which is ON STAGE. I wanted to humanize the band a bit and make something that looks like nothing else they have ever released. And I think we got pretty damn close.
Everything was filmed super off the cuff, nothing was really staged except for when Jake is singing his vocals in the control room. Other than that the video is basically just capturing everyone hanging around the studio for an afternoon.
The video was filmed with our Panasonic HVX-200a P2 Camcorder w/ SG Blade 35mm Lens Adapter (Canon Lens). A couple of ARRI 650 lights were used as well. Edited in Avid Media Composer. Effected with Boris Film Damage.
