Fury in the Slaughterhouse

Fury in the Slaughterhouse

I did both the offline edit and the online finishing work for this music video. Back in the heyday of music videos, I worked on dozens of them in every capacity.

“Every Generation Got Its Own Disease” was a song by the popular German band, Fury In The Slaughterhouse.  The song was a hit in its day and this piece played a lot on MTV.  But the real star of this video was the director, Doug Aitken.  He went on to become a major visual artist, exhibiting his work in top museums worldwide.

It was a thrill to work with Doug, whose task was to make an American version of the original German music video. Many of the visual effects he achieved in-camera shooting himself with a 16mm Bolex. For example, he purposely threaded the film incorrectly to achieve the “flutter” effect in some of the images.

He also encouraged experimentation in the edit. And I took full advantage of that encouragement.
