Client: Brevner / Tom MacDonald


We worked closely with director David McDonald to produce Matt Brevner’s “Dark Side of the Moon” from his third solo album, The Bushido Project: a raw mix of the warriors code and sample-based hip hop. Funded in association with Telus and Public Records.

Turning a tiny studio and some office chairs into some outer space verses. Now that's Bold.

30,000+ views

Over 30 thousand views on Matt's channel alone, but another 10k on other YouTube channels

TELUS Optik Grant

The video was aired on MuchMusic, the director nominated for a Leo award, and covered by blogs

Shooting is space is expensive, so we filmed everything on a green screen, in a garage.  Had you fooled, eh?
Director David McDonald is also a VFX guru, by comping together all these stellar sequences.
