Irish Produced DJ Tensnake Video gaining International Acclaim
Something that Ireland should be immensely proud of, is the talent that exists in our music video scene. There have been some quite significant developments in recent years with some individuals making quite a name for themselves, and I have been increasingly impressed by our output. In particular, our indie scene regularly manages to produce some astounding content, more often than not on shoe-string budgets.
One such video has been brought to my attention this week, and has been getting some superb exposure internationally (including the mighty Pitchfork!), clocking up over 40,000 views since I last checked. To boot, it’s a pretty savage track.
The artist is German DJ Tensnake, and the video has been directed by Pondr. Fiona Conlon-McKenna was on producing duties, and Piers McGrail is down as Director of Photography. Piers and I have worked on many projects together and his quality output of numerous top Irish music videos of late is astounding. Check out his work here.
The video is completely Irish produced, and everyone worked on it for free! The video stars kids from Dublin Stage Coach where the principal Evan Holten Murray found them 30 wonderfully talented kids to realize this film.
