03/29/2007 Video shooting diary (29.03.2007) Henkka
Cheers Y'all!

Some random notes about our video-shoot which took place on the ice in Kemi last Tuesday.
We'd been rehearsing for the upcoming shows for about a week when we took one day off to shoot the video for Paid in full, our first single from the new album. We'd been talking with the director and throwing ideas back and forth and finally we settled on shooting outside on ice.

On Monday evening after our rehearsals the film-crew arrives to Kemi, also our production manager Punkki and our pyroguy Ari are on the scene. We have a few beers and get to know each other before heading to bed, the shooting day will be long and we need to prepare for that.

Come Tuesday morning the band heads out to the location around 11 in the morning, the filmcrew as well as Punkki & Ari + our drumtech Tapsa & gtr-tech Lindholm have been up and working since around 8 o'clock and as we arrive everything is almost ready. We check our clothes, Ari puts on some make-up for us etc... and at noon we start shooting. On this clip we actually used a real 16mm film instead of mini-dv or something else, the whole day goes by shooting different scenes etc. The most fun is when Ari blows up some ice, creating 20-30 metres high ice & water poles. We do about half a dozen of those during the day. Anyways at around 9 or 10 in the evening it's a wrap and having been freezing our asses off during the day, we happily head back to town and towards the sauna and the jäger....to throw a party seems appropriate and that we do. Come Wednesday it's hangover and going home time. Nevertheless, the material we shot looks awesome and the video will be done in a couple of days. I don't know when you all get to see the video but it should be out before the album.

On Saturday Tony & I are going to NYC to do some promotion, we might check in from there if we have the time. Otherwise I'll probably write down whatever fragments of memories I have from that trip when I get home. I think that's about it, enjoy these photos from the videoshooting....

cheers,
Henkka
