The Dodge Brothers - Middle Of Nowhere

Shot, directed and produced by devillefilm:

The Dodge Brothers - 'Middle of Nowhere' - from their latest album 'Drive Train'.

Shot in the New Forest (UK) - we were looking to capture the road movie aspect of The Dodge Brother's music, and they chose this song as their first single from their new album. Shot and edited by Reece de Ville using a Black Magic Production Camera and a DJI Mavic 2 Zoom for aerial shots. All shot in one day as well - as the band were limited to a few hours (Mark Kermode being a BBC Film Reviewer and incredibly busy) with the drummer shot during a concert the next evening!

Director Statement

From a young age I loved watching late night Hammer Horror movies, getting scared and also big laughs from creaking sets and even creakier actors. So I've always had a huge interest in film - from working at the BBC in marketing and creating films for internal use through to promos for iPlayer and then finally starting my own business up as a freelancer and then through devillefilm.

Whether it's a music video, broadcast piece, promo for an international or local business, I always strive to avoid the 'cookie cutter approach' and give someone something new and unique every time.

My work with The Dodge Brothers over the years - small promos and live concerts - has culminated in this lovely ode to the 50s American road movie with 'Middle Of Nowhere'. I'm particularly proud of this as I devised, shot, edited and produced it myself in a very tight time frame and for an incredibly small budget. And that's always been my way - make it look bigger, for less!

This is my first submission to the world of films festivals - but I'm very proud of the work here and I hope you like it too!
