Following on the heels of the grippingly stark clip for "Marvel," Solillaquists of Sound return with a video for "Gotham City Chase Scene." The second in their trilogy of videos from their 2009 album No More Heroes (Anti-/Epitaph) and once again directed by producer/visionary X:144, "Gotham City Chase Scene" lives up to its name, featuring a squad of agents in hot pursuit of the SoS members.
Shot on a zero dollar budget in the heat of Orlando's summer (temperatures during the shoot went as high as 100 degrees!), "Gotham" proved to be a true community effort; the video features the talents of local Parkour group Team Zoic (http://teamzoic.com), as well as appearances by prominent members of the city's art and music scenes. The Solilla crew wound up shooting enough footage for a short movie during their grueling shooting schedule (an effort that will be highlighted in an upcoming behind-the-scenes documentary).
The end result is a compelling, action-packed clip that demands multiple viewings, and acts as a revealing prequel to the "Marvel" clip (also posted below). Stay tuned for the third installment in Solilla's video trilogy...
video edited, directed & cinematography by <a href="http://www.fifthelementonline.com/catalogsearch/result/?q=x%3A144">X:144 (Maged Khalil Ragab) on NO budget.. not one penny!
