Dead
Up For Ransom

Lewis Cater wanted to create a classic, smooth-90’s Top Of The Pops aesthetic juxtaposed with an aggressive, dynamic and in your face performance from Dead; a warm feeling of nostalgia with a sharp, modern bite. To execute the look we went on the hunt for a Ikegami 3-tube camera which, for those who don’t speak video, is an antique in the camera world and not stocked at any rental houses (being a low-fi piece of equipment from the 1970’s). Our quest for this particular relic wasn’t quite Raiders Of The Lost Arc but we did have to go to Milton Keynes to meet a man called ‘Dicky’; who was only too happy to blow the cobwebs off this old broadcast camera as well as operate the video.
