Voodoo mama


My friends of the Broken Brass Ensemble asked me to make a music video for them.

Their song Voodoo Mama got remixed by the guys of Cairo Liberation Front.

Now music video's or professional movie making is not really my thing.

Lucky for me it was just a fun project and the band didn't take it too seriously.

That gave me the freedom to just mess around a bit and experiment.


The video is made without any budget and shot on a Nikon D5100 with a 18-55m kit lens. Because The whole video is shot with only candlelight as a light source. In the video I tried to depict some sort of occult ritual, referring to the title of the song.
