While She Sleeps in Japan, Sept ’14
“Brother, the Crossfaith tour is back on… I’m going to email you the dates right now, hope you are free!”
I think that’s what my brother Mat text me…
Almost a year before I’d received a similar text, but post-Warped Tour stresses had set hold on the band after years of relentless of touring, particularly on Loz’s voice. The tour was postponed for almost a year, but my objective remained the same year. As soon as I found out about the potential I pitched it – I wanted to come, under no-fee to film my own short about the band in Japan, and a recap on their career so far.
Almost a year later; that call came in and I told them my pitch was the same. Take me, and I will produce.
Enter: 2 weeks in Japan, with just 8 shows (= 6 days off seeing cool shit!).
The short-film is (finally) in post-production and I don’t want to share any more of the narrative than this above, but here are the stills I shot for the band out there.
Japan is one of the coolest places I’ve ever been. I can’t wait to finish the film and show everyone what we saw.
Thankyou While She Sleeps, Crossfaith & their respective teams (especially Rew & Bobby) for the incredible hospitality and undoubtedly 2 of the coolest weeks of my life.
Did I mention that we shot a film…….
