Director/writer Mark Blackman had created this incredible concept For this music promo which is just genius. Sidebar – interestingly after having shot this music promo based on the Legendary Stanley Kubrick, I would then go on to shoot Kubrick By Candle Light Short film directed by David O Reiley, the projected are not connected in anyway. I digress.
Very small team playing Tetris in Mark’s and Roxy’s Kitchen, not as in game but we were the blocks sliding and twisting amongst each other.
Stig Of The Dump’s Kubrick is an celebratory ode to the work of the master director, and MJ Blackman’s takes a similar approach, being reverential and humourous in equal measure as it places Stig in some micro-budget recreations of some classic Kubrick movies, from Dr Strangelove to Full Metal Jacket.

We had decided early on that 95% of the shoot should be done in camera and the use of greenscreen was banned!
The opening lyrics – the DoP even gets a shout out! not me personally but the craft of the DP is mentioned in high regards.
Captured on Canon C300 with Canon Primes. A good weekend shoot indeed.
