THE COMPUTERS IN BERLIN
In December 2012 we drove over to Berlin to film a video for THE COMPUTER's single DISCO SUCKS. What an amazing place Berlin is. Filming there was hassle free... the band set up along the Berlin wall, on the Tube, and even managed to do a shoot in front of the Brandenburg Gate, without once being told to move on. (Imagine how quickly you'd be shut down if you started filming in Princesshay!)
Carl Shanahan shot the video on a Canon 7D with a crew of just one - me! It was bitterly cold and the poor bastard forgot his gloves. I think he did a pretty good job though....
There were a few shots that didn't make the cut including some in the amazing Ramones Museum which is situated on Krausnickstrase 23. You've got to pay the place a visit if you ever go there -it was set up by a guy called Flo Hayler in 2005. www.ramonesmuseum.com
