FIDLAR - No Waves (Crackhead Ted pt. 2)

When FIDLAR was first starting out, we made a video for a song called Crackhead Ted.
I wanted to try this idea of singing to a slowed down track and then speeding the video up in post to have it match.

Zac, Brandon, and Brandon's girlfriend, Cayla were all over at our house one night.  Cayla had her camera with her, and since we weren't doing anything else, we decided to make this video.  It was super loose, very spur of the moment.  That was the first video we ever did together.

So, now 2 years later, we were trying to come up with an idea for the No Waves video and the band suggested we do the same concept.  It seemed very fitting being the first video under the Mom + Pop label.  The video for "Oh" had been a bit of an undertaking and it seemed like a great idea to just do something fun.

We kept Alice as the frontman and Zac in his animal hat and Brandon with his animal mask and american flag in his mouth.  But for this video, I wanted to do real vhs effects, and make it more apparent that it was just 1 take.  So, we start the video off in the day time and ended it after dark.  We didn't really plan much of this thing out at all.  I tried my best to keep the spontaneity of the 1st video, so no one really knew what they were supposed to be doing.  But I think it worked out and we had a super fun time making it.
