This time we welcome the English prog torch-bearers to our dreamy, introspective tour series, Ghosts of the Road. It’s funny, because if you compare the mood of this video to the Toto’s Africa A Cappella video we did with them (which was on the same day btw) you will see an immediate contrast. Throw some ambient music (more on that in a moment) in there and make the footage black and white and you can change the entire feeling of a series.
One of our new guys, and a big Haken fan, Kevin edited this one, and I particularly love the section between 2:47 – 3:12. Nice work, Kev!
So for those you keeping score at home, and who are thinking about how to make the most out of one shooting day, this is the 4th episode we made from this one day of shooting. We did the Auto-Cappella with Haken singing Toto’s Africa, we edited a making-of video for that, we did a Spotlight episode with support band Rendezvous Pointe and we shot this all-day episode of Ghost of the Road with Haken. German efficiency (at least on the part of my crew, as I am an American…)!
And, yes, that is a duck chilling in a flower pot at the rock venue.
