American Murder Song Video Series – The Devil in Camp

The Devil in Camp was the first in the series of music videos i directed for the band American Murder Song for their album The Donner Party.

The idea was 2 Witch/Puritan girls from another era, perform a strange choreographed dance in a kindergarten classroom in ONE TAKE.

As you know, filming long takes requires every move and moment to be timed exactly right for the song to work. So with a classroom location secured for 4 hours, Saar, Terrance and I set up and started shooting. by the end of the day, I was amazed that the girls could stand any longer!

In the end we got a really fun to watch video, that many fans actually dance along to when AMS is playing live in concerts. Loads of fans have actually memorized the dance, I love the fans!!!
