SOV Music Video

The shot-on-video horror movies of the 80's and early 90's have seen a resurgence in popularity recently, partly due to films like SLEDGEHAMMER, 555, and THE BURNING MOON getting new reissues. The video aesthetic has been mined for a variety of uses in advertising and marketing of late but for those of us in the SOV cult there has been a question regarding all new attempts to recreate the style: Why doesn't this feel authentic? Most recent attempts to capture the period are using modern equipment and applying filters in post-production to achieve a "video look". Wouldn't it be easier to use a camcorder? I worked with my partners on the upcoming documentary REWIND THIS! to create a short film/music video using equipment and techniques of the time. The video is for Beaujolais, the musical alter-ego of Bleeding Skull creator Joseph A. Ziemba. Take a look at a slasher movie that never existed.
