E-Jitz – Def Con Wan

Friends recorded and released this cover of Pop Will Eat Itself’s Def Con One on 10″ vinyl (which got the thumbs up from various members of the band) and they asked me to make the official video, wanting a ‘schizophrenic’ feel.

As the lyrics throws out so many cultural references I wanted to make a homage to the 80’s cutup videos that inspired me, and create an overload of images.

Although this was made in Adobe Premiere, I manually glitched the images via a VHS recorder, re-recording some of the footage to fit with the low-res feel, and using the combination of the capture card and the shuttle wheel to get that MPEG glitching effect, such as the Watchmen footage which otherwise looked out of place.
