Making the Distant Past Video

To celebrate nearly HALF A MILLION VIEWS in just eight weeks, here is a special little behind the scenes insight from the filming of the music video for Distant Past, by Everything Everything.

As I’ve said before, this shoot was a stupid amount of fun. We got to beat each other up, smash each other with lumps of wood and do battle on top of Cheddar Gorge – and nobody died!

The film crew and whole team from Squire were great, and having John directing the video was an amazing (and slightly surreal) touch.

If you haven’t seen it yet, the music video is pretty damn cool:

About the Author
Ed Gamester is a silly man who lives in the United Kingdom. He is the harbinger of Ghost Squad, singer of Gay Bum and author of A Rum Run Awry. He fights, kills and dies for TV and films, and gallivants around the place wrestling, drinking and lifting things for glory and profit. Where Ed treads, there stamp the boots of the Guild. Ed does not wear glasses, but feels this photograph makes him look more intelligent and artistically talented than he is. Feel free to contact him: he is disappointingly affable.
