Tim Peach, friend of Rampage, musical whiz and long time creative collaborator, had an idea to create a music video that was one long, continuous shot with no cuts. He asked us if we’d like to do it and we said “yes”.The story of how Rampage brought Conspiracy to life really is that simple.It’s a neat idea to do something in one long take. Many creatives approaching a concept like this would instantly think of clever ways to film it in short takes and then make it look like it was done in one long take using some very complicated techniques during post-production.That was not our approach when making Conspiracy. Simplicity was the key and also the charm to this video. It really is one hand held take.The song tells the story of Momo:tempo and his obsession with various women who have left him in the past. He just can’t figure out why they’ve left him because he is a really, really great guy. There must be something wrong with these girls, right? In order to think this conundrum through Momo created an evidence wall of all the objects that remind him of the girls he’s dated (Objects he probably found whilst searching through their bins…) The music video pans along this wall as Momo tells us about the girls who have jilted him.“There’s gotta be reason why they’re wanting to leave me!?”
Tim had roughly designed the wall layout and had a list of all the props needed which he sourced prior to filming (apart from the wall clock, which was from Ben’s kitchen). The main thing we needed was a room which could be dressed to look as if a crazy guy lived there. It just so happened that Rampage was moving into a new studio which is a lovely Victorian era space complete with grand fireplaces. It had the perfect look for the video.
