After having a great experience working with The Jackets on the 2012 video production of “Freak Out”, The Decoys approached the band again with an incredibly cool idea to make a very professional Zombie/Action music video Inspired by one of The Jackets new tracks, “Keep Yourself Alive”. Set in a world where most ‘normal’ people have turned into brain-dead zombies. The only ones unaffected by this metamorphosis are the “Rock ‘n’ Rollers” who live under the cities in the sewers and forgotten bomb shelters. It is up to The Jackets to defend themselves against hordes of hungry flesh eaters with the power of Rock ’n’ Roll. Supplies are scarce and they will have to use their creativity to survive.
Normally, making videos and movies takes a lot of time and effort from those who participate and can cost tens of thousands to produce. We will be shooting for three days with around fifty people on set shooting outside and inside at different locations. We we will assemble an amazing crew who will be mostly volunteering their time plus three people working three weeks, full time on Post and Pre-production. Because of this we are asking for only the absolute minimum of $8,000 to cover essential costs for:
