When record label PIAS approached me to make this music video for Diablo Boulevard’s new track my interest was piqued by the fact that this was a ballad by a metal band.
The song’s subject is the Saint of Killers, a fictional character from the graphic novel book Preacher and the band wanted to translate the graphic art into real life action. We scouted a quaint little countryside chapel in Belgium and set to work with the set designers to make it creepy and disturbing.
There were a lot of technical challenges here. We had to work out extensive, complex choreography and give the actors/band training about how to use the remote controlled bullet bags. This was not a boring shoot!
