Backstage with the "Babies" / by Laura Heald

The Backyard Babies are our favorite Swedish rock-n-roll band. We were lucky enough to spend a couple days with them at the beginning of their European tour in January. We watched them perform from the best seats in the house at their shows in Turku and Helsinki while we taped the music video to their new song Abandon. The venues were small so we had to make a lot happen in small spaces. We shot the whole video on the Nikon D3s using Manfrotto Supports, Chimera lighting solutions and Cinevate DSLR and linear tracking systems. Our goal was to show the intensity of a Backyard Babies' live show by using movement and tension.

This is a quick look at the production.
