The Belligerents are a five-piece pop rock band from Brisbane. Their critically acclaimed debut album ‘Science Fiction’ was awarded Triple J Feature Album of the week upon its release in September, 2017.
We worked with the Belligerents to capture the final show of their ‘Science Fiction’ tour in 2018. Our brief was to create a social media video that highlighted the band’s successful national run of shows and promote their upcoming single. Our solution was to create two pieces of video content – a short documentary and a one minute highlights video.
Our goal was to take fans behind-the-scenes as the Belligerents prepared for their last big show of the tour. We filmed the last minute sound checks, the crowd pouring into the venue and the excitement as the band took the stage. We conducted one-on-one interviews with each band member and spoke about their personal experiences from the tour.
The two videos were shared through the Belligerents Facebook and Instagram accounts and received more than 7000 views. The result was an insight into how a band comes to terms with success and this show at the Zoo was their crowning moment.
"Late nights, early flights, shenanigans. Just hanging out with the boys being on the road. It's really fun."
