Music Video Overview

Love life. It’s sums up the message of Con Bro Chill. To us, “Love Life” means getting rad, getting goofy, and getting wild with your buds. Doing all the things that make you happy. We want to take this concept and apply it to a OK GO styled one continuous shot video, mash it with chaotic Jackass antics, and drench it with the charm and outrageousness of the Con Bro Chill brand to create a purely glorious slow motion eye candy masterpiece.

The format will be a chase. It will open with Con running from something we never get to see.  As the camera tracks Con (never cutting) Con bursts through a randomly placed wall into a room where the rest of the band is sitting playing their instruments. Once Con busts through the wall everyone takes off running from this unknown threat and begin their journey running into various random, outrageous, and hilarious obstacles that gradually escalate in their grandiosity. Anything that looks clever or funny in slow motion will fill the frame from the background to foreground of the camera. Imagine taking elements of the Color Run, Mad Max, American Gladiators, Wipe Out, and America’s funniest home video. This is the world we want to create. A chase that grows more and more dangerous and ridiculous as they move down the screen.

It’s gonna be fun.

Casting

Casting

The 4 band members will be featured but this will require around 50 extras that will all have individual responsibilities. We will ask our fans, the Neon Army, to come out and be apart of this ridiculous spectacle. Everyone will be dressed up in either Neon 80’s attire like they do at our concerts or a specific costume related to their scenarios they will be playing during the race (i.e. matador, a cheer leading squad, girls in bikinis sun bathing, full marching band, rad 80’s skateboarders, a couple streakers, etc.)

Visual-Style

Visual Style

We will shoot this on a Steadicam. The camera will have a choreographed path covering the race from the side and some points moving in front of us to get our facial reactions. All this happens in a 35 second sprint of chaos and then slowed to 10% the speed to match the song’s actual length. There will be occasional speed ramps to aid in the pace and excitement of the video. We think this should be shot during the daytime closer to golden hour or early in the morning. We think “Love Life” has a daytime feel to it. There is however an option to rent humungous HMI lights and film at night to give it a more dramatic effect. The location needs to be an open space. We were thinking an open field with an ambiguous backdrop would be ideal. To make the background more interesting we would use smoke, fireworks, explosions, spraying water, back light etc. to make it more interesting and less “Open field” looking.

Camera

We tested with the FS700 with an external recorder that can record at 240 FPS (plenty slow for what we are trying to do) on a 16mm lens in RAW. We will need the wide angel and deep depth of field to capture all the action and have nothing go out of focus. The Red Epic is another candidate if we find a need to shoot at a higher resolution such as 4K in order to have more flexibility in post. Both of these camera’s are beasts, however, and would capture equally stunning imagery — all in epic slow motion.



How-It-Goes-Down-Pic

Script Overview

We see this as a highly choreographed series of chaos happening as the band runs from trouble. This is as much about the band escaping from the unknown as it is the funny things going on in the background. There is a large amount of room for ideas that could work in this race of dreams and our list below is by no means the be all end all of this project. This is what we have come up with to catch the eye of the audience so far and are up for more incredibleness. This race will be layered very thick with activity so imagine each one of these scenarios going on as others are going on as well. The band members will definitely split up and take different paths along the race.

-The opening shot we see Con running frantically and as we pan out we see he’s running right for a wall. He bursts through the wall and we see the rest of the band members.

-We start moving the camera and a funny blow up fat orange man tells them to get going (See video). he waves the flag and the band bursts into an all out sprint.

-Sam hits a gymnastics spring board and front flips onto a large trampoline to break his fall

-Steve breaks through a pee wee football team who thinks they are running a kick off

-Ty Breaks through 8 large exercise balls being thrown at him at once

-People in the background have giant climb in balloons around their neck bobbing up and down

-The band than stops their racing to a man sleeping in a big bed and they lift up the mattress and throw him in the air waking him from his sleep.

-As that’s happening we see girls in pajamas having a pillow fight with feathers flying everywhere

-As the feathers float in the air we see a guy who had just been tarred, feather himself as he runs through the pillow fight

-The band takes off in their own directions. Sam and Ty dodge a matador toying with them

-steve sprints and stops at a dinner table says his prayers and flips the table towards the camera

-Con runs up a another wall sticking out of the ground and does his signature backflip off the wall

-In the background we see an oversized jump rope with a man in a rubber ducky costume and he throws 100 rubber ducky’s (we have them) towards the camera (slow motion eye candy).

-Members of the band, but with Humungous paper maché heads pass the band as they are racing and the members look at these heads with confusion and curiosity (See video for head example)

-Ty does a jean Claud Van Damme kick into a bad guy and knocks him over and does the classic JCVD YELLLLLLLL of triumph

-In the background we see leaf blowers blowing toilet paper rolls into the air in radical streams of white.

-Another guy goes crazy with a classic TNT handle blast system and blows up some dolls filled with color powder.

-The band sprints by a long line of Fountain Shower Fireworks and a man Spinning a fire spark steel wool  thing. (trust me its rad).

-A homecoming Cheer leading squad holds a huge piece of paper that says LOVE LIFE and we rip through it like a Football team.

-Ty and steve sprint by the camera up onto a ladder and Jump into a crowd surf with 20 people waiting to catch them and move them to the other side

-Sam and Con run by a station set up with Mentos and Diet Coke bottles exploding in unison in the air.

-A kid is struggling and drowning in a kiddie pool and thrown into the air is a lifeguard floatie. Con Catches it and picks the kid up and saves his life and carries him out of the pool on his shoulders.

-Huge Water balloons and small ballons come flying through the air pelting the guys

-As they clear the wet mess we enter into the hindu paint throwing (color run). People come running into screen like dust storms of colorful paint streaming from their body (See video for example). It’s a colorful mess of beauty and joy. the band run through them to get to the finish line getting covered in the chaos.

-The band does a Super sweet Jump High Five as confetti cannons go off because we’re all freaking winners and the camera pulls back to reveal the chaos they have left behind and to help prove that this shot was in actuality all in one take.

Delivery and Usage

We want to take our delivery to the masses to the next level. We’ve made 10 big music videos w/ an average of 586,000 views per vid (the highest being 1.2 million views and the lowest being 300,000 views). We use our social media outlets and some general media outlets to promote but these views have all been mostly organic. We are looking for partners to help us take this radness to the masses and reach the eye balls we think these videos and ideas deserve. We think sharing media channels as well as putting some money publicity that gets this video into the hands of trendsetters all over the internet is the goal. After that the video should speak for itself but we love to light a fire under our videos out of the gate.

We think this video has an overwhelmingly positive and fun message behind it and we can’t wait to go after it! Thanks for taking the time to here out our ideas and we hope to rock the world with you!

What I like Music Video

  |   Uncategorized

Music Video Overview

“What I Like” is easily the sexiest song these 4 married dudes will ever come up with, so we’re gonna roll with it. This video is all about man’s relentless, strategic, and persistent pursuit of a woman through DANCE. In all the great dance era’s of our time, the 50’s greaser/swing revival, 70’s Disco glory days, 80’s break dance fighting/Michael Jackson grooving, Man would use his finest maneuvers to attract females into his web of masculinity. Luckily for us, this web of masculinity requires a ridiculous stylish outfit, a sweet hair do, and outrageous pelvic rotation; all of which we can provide. This music video will follow the band dance fighting each other for the same girl through the 3 eras mentioned (50’s, 70’s, and 80’s). This relentless pursuit of this one female will lead to massive conflicts between these parties in each era. Conflicts so volatile they can only be resolved by one thing, DANCE. We’ll be seamlessly transitioning between eras while following a linear story line of their pursuit of this woman. We will build 3 different sets in the corners of a studio so that we can transition seamlessly from era to era on the same dance floor. Lighting, backdrop, costuming and outrageous group choreography will change to help give this vide it’s surreal feel. We mean every little thing will be choreographed. top domains Boys smoking cigarettes, Disco dudes combing their hair, 80’s breakdancers spray painting the wall.  This will be a magical my friends. See below some video inspirations we found online.

Visual Style

Each era will have it’s own style inspired by classic films like Grease, Footloose, Outsiders, Saturday Night Fever, Breakin, and Michael Jackson’s Beat it. To differentiate the sets we’ll use dance outfits from each era and for the 50’s we’ll do a well lit school dance, for the 70’s a colorfully and dramatically lit dance club w/ Disco balls and crazy back lighting, and the 80’s club will be a little more raw and grimey as well as dramatic.

CASTING

We need Dancers. The 4 band members will be the leaders of their dance gangs and the primary focus of the video. Filling the club we’ll need young dancers aged 18 – 30 of all types. Very much like Michael Jackson’s crowd in Beat It. And most important of all we need that woman who we are after the whole video. This damsel is an attractive young lady who can most importantly dance. 5’8 and below is ideal (apologies to Con’s Wife Julia). Around 20 committed dance extras up for learning choreography would be great.

 

CAMERA

Shooting w/ FS700 and Odyssey would work great in this environment shooting full Raw to have exceptional control over the color correction to differentiate the eras and make them pop!

 

How We See It Going Down

Opening Option 

-It opens in a Sex Ed Class with a teacher addressing the class, “SEX-UAL EDU-CATION. Safety first you horn balls. That’s what I’m about! But listen you’re never gonna find your monogamer w/ out some game… I give you 1978’s “How To Attract The Opposite Sex”.

-The teacher struggles to press splay on the VHS tv and eventually gets the video going. We see a very crusty Narrator in the film. He opens w/ the statement, “It’s always been hard, the 50’s, 70’s, even the 80’s. But the only real way to attract a woman, is through intelligent; persistent; and STRATEGIC, DANCE!

-The song rolls and we enter a High School Dance from 1952 and everyone is all greased up and grooving. Everyone is in sync and choreographed with someone else. This is an odd world where everyone is choreographed depending on their emotion. People who are having fun do the same dance. People who are too cool sitting on the wall have their own choreographed movements. Girls nervous sitting down waiting for someone to ask them to dance are in sync. People running into dance to their favorite song are in sync. Kids sneaking cigarettes or sips of a flask are all in sync. It’s a strange world but god is it beautiful.

-We meet the band. Con and Steve are grooving being too cool by the wall staring down at Sam and Ty putting out a cigarette staring back in malice. Their eyes all catch a beautiful girl enter the room.

-We meet our damsel entering the dance w/ some of her friends looking nervous and clearly on the watch. She’s moving to the beat w/ her girls.

-The boys all take a pass at the girl trying to swing dance their way into her heart. They throw her back and forth but they fail to impress. Steve dumps a bucket of water Flash Dance Dance style on his head to impress her. She smoothly moves away as the two sets of boys dance battle at each other in a ridiculous manner as she watches from the dance floor.

-We see our damsel in 1950’s gear dancing away by herself and as we pan the camera circling around her the lights drop and the cool disco lights and moving beams come on (Like ROBYN – Call your girlfriend) and we enter into a disco era all in one shot. Everyone’s costumes have changed. It’s straight up Saturday Night Fever.

-We cut back to our damsel and she is suddenly looking like Farah faucet. She looks good. We look to the dance floor and the band mates and their cronies are in a very similar dance off going at each other. They notice the girl again. Things really start to heat up as they encircle this gal and do a very 70’s choreographed moment all together.

-Each band member then takes a disco pass at our girl followed by a climactic Flash Dance Bucket Dump on Steve to try and impress this girl again. Nothing works and the boys have another dance altercation w/ each other.

-We than similarly follow the girl out of the disco era and into the 80’s break dance era. The lighting changes to more dramatic w/ no beams of colorful light.

-The boys are there standing in 80’s break dance gear w/ dudes breakdancing all around them. This time their facing the girl and waiting for her. It’s a bit more aggressive and ominous. They are now on a team it seems like.

-We cut to the damsel decked out in sweet 80’s gear with her gal pals and they are pissed now. They go on the offensive against these hyenas. They take out there aggression and dance fight these animals away freaking everyone out. The boys try to counter attack but they don’t know what to do because they are so used to fighting each other for the girls. Now they all get a piece of the damsel in their face. After some serious tension it is clear she is not going home with any of them and that it’s now just time to jam out. We end the song w/ full on 80’s Michael Jackson choreography as a unit and call it a day. No one wins, everyone wins. This girl is just trying to dance.
