Here’s a video that was shot (I did the close-ups and Adrian Coetzer monitored the tripod for the master shot) during the launch of Saxit’s new album Systeme Diabolique at the Gardens Bowling Club in Cape Town. There was very little light available because the evening was supposed to be moody and intimate. Hence, there’s a lot of grain in the footage, but I think it fits well with the retro atmosphere (the bowling club has been around since 1895 — the oldest in the Western Cape Province, and third oldest in South Africa!). For the edit, I experimented with an interplay between black-and-white and colour, and included some light-leaks. Saxit! are performing their version of composer Elmer Bernstein’s theme for Magnificent Seven — the 1960s American Western film directed by John Sturges.
