Bad Brains- Give Thanks and Praises


Director: Shavo

Portland and Sasquatch March 2007.

Inspiring and beautiful. It’s the old dog for the long road.

This was a challenge budget wise, as Danny and Shavo wanted to shoot on film.  We dug all the old 16mm out of my fridge and clip tested each roll. Some of it was more than ten years old, but still had good curves.

Shavo knows how to make videos:


SOD “Ariels” is a precursor of  Yolanda of

Die Antwoord

One day soon we will wake up and these weird alien creatures will be walking around chilling in the Mall with a “what the Fuck are you looking at” look in their eyes.
