I've always liked the look of projection booths (I worked in a movie theater for most of my teenage years). And since I know five of the managers at a local theater, we got to shoot this video in one.
Like Monsters, it was filmed and recorded at the same time. But we only had a little over 5 hours to shoot and record everything, since we had to work after hours and be out before 6am. Luckily, we'd rehearsed this one a few times before the shoot, so there weren't nearly as many screw ups, and I was walking without a cane at this point. But even still, we only got to about half of the shots Mark and I had originally planned. I think it still worked out, but I'd have loved to see how some of the planned stuff would've looked on film. Oh well.
But like the Monsters video, we had the "backing band" in masks. There wasn't any real reason for this. We just thought it looked funny.
