Skybaby Siren is a Sydney band everyone should be listening to. The musical creative outlet for Craig Beck & Friends, whose influences include The Church and Echo & The Bunnymen.
Filmed on the Arri Alexa using a set of wonderful old Cook Speed Panchro lenses, the locations were all in studio at Sydney Props in Marrickville where we found some really cool little sets with old wall paper and retro furniture. We had a bunch of different looks for different parts of the song, so all the verses were done in black and white and have more of contrasty look. The first chorus has a 70’s Kodachrome grade and the second chorus has more of a saturated 60’s Mad Men feel. The Kodachrome look has a bit more contrast and saturation than the 60’s look. Finally the breakdown in the middle has an Instagram hipster look with over blown colours and a light leak. We were able to pick a space for each look, so the black and white and a large open room with a chase lounge and chandelier, and the two retro looks each had their own rooms with retro wall paper and old furnishings. The shots where Elia is singing to camera were all shot at 60fps and everything else was either at 100fps or 120fps.
