This music video was produced for the viking metal band "Obscurity". The video is about the Viking's raid on Lindisfarne Island in 793. Historically, the Vikings invaded the island and killed all the monks who lived in the local monastery.
The video has won multiple international awards for Best Director and Best Music Video
Scene filmed with the gimbal on an exoskeleton. So you can withstand the weight for a long time.
793 (Official Video)
Almost 50 Vikings and monks, a total of 70 people on set and only two and a half days of shooting time ... that was the task. Despite the difficult conditions, such as rain and equipment failures, we had a lot of fun filming with the guys from Obscurity again. We received a lot of BTS material that we don't want to withhold from anyone, of course.

This monk is waiting for his end.
Filming is a lot of paperwork. Our shotlist comprised almost 200 shots.
Johnny Depp once said: 'Awards are not as important to me as when I meet a 10-year-old kid who says, that it loves Captain Jack Sparrow.'
We feel the same. If the customer is satisfied, then we have achieved our goals. ...we are of course still happy about an award :)
