Official music video for the song "Don't follow me" from the album "New Battles, without honor and humanity" (2011) by 2L8.
Directed by John Karabelas
Camera by J.Karabelas and Joan Chrysanthopoulou
Produced by J.Karabelas/LES YPER YPER and 2L8
Shot with single takes and in sequence, on one roll of super8.
Some minimal editing was done to follow the pace of the song.
Kostas Vozikis (2L8) came to me with the basic idea of a boy , a girl, lost innocence, greed and eventual corruption. After doing some reading about old european folk tales, rights of passage, some necessary daydreaming and continuous listening to the song, there was a storyboard. The filming was done in 2 consecutive days on sub-zero budget but with lots of enthusiasm and generous help from the team and cast.

A Big Thank you to:
A forgotten super 8 reel is found. The images are washed out and of no use. After some heavy treatment, images emerge, lost memories are brought back to life, a lost page off a diary.
