Created for NZ band - KNIVES AT NOON.
Filmed on active marine volcano Te Puia o Whakaari - White Island, 50km off the east coast of New Zealand.
Due to the mid Winter production schedule we were forced to wait weeks on end for a day of fine weather in order for Volcanic Air to safely chopper over our crew (and on top of that, the Volcano had to be on good behavior too). It was nerve-wracking having everything on the line and being entirely at the mercy of an active volcano.
Thankfully, the time finally came and White Island turned on a perfectly amazing day... and the wind was conveniently blowing the toxic sulphuric gases away from us!
A huge thanks to everyone for their effort and support in making this project possible.
