Waste Away • Hessler • Music Video

Can you tell yet that we are great friends with Hessler?!? Waste Away was the 5th video that we produced for the band, and an interesting experience in the art of projection. With the band, and Motion Source, wanting to stray from the familiar territory of previous Hessler videos, we brainstormed something that was still performance heavy, but that contained a strong does of limited symbolism. What does that mean exactly? Well, for all of the footage projected behind the band, we limited ourselves to utilizing archival footage available on the internet, the one caveat being that the footage, in some sense, had to resonate with the themes and/or mood of the track. If you watch the footage you will see a weird mix of everything from gorilla attacks to tanks advancing to clowns--and, it all works!
