Looking back! Making of Octolabs second music video. Mind and Matter




Horror producer Jonas Wolcher known for strange titles such as the zombie cult movie “DIE ZOMBIEJÄGER” “HERMIT: MONSTER KILLER” and “CANNIBAL FOG” is back for the second time. “Mind and Matter” by Octolab. The band who consist of Arielle Andersson and Fredrik Lundvall Kindsäter.
Fredrik is more known for one of the band members in the cult electro-duo Presto Fervant.
Recently the band played at Electronic Summer 2017 and a couple of days later they won first price for their music video “Caravan” at a film festival in Romania.

 

Arielle: – We are having so much fun going on right now. “Mind and Matter” is the part two of the trilogy from our mini album “To Be Continued” which was released in June. This video we shot in April 30th.


In October we film “ARTE” the last video from the album.
Octolab enjoys horror. “Mind and Matter is no exception. Like the previous “Caravan” the theme is horror but this time a much darker and sinister one. The story is taking off where the previous one ended. The cenobite characters are played once again by the band. The Swedish star Ida Karolin Johansson and her co star Emelie Andersson are back as well including Malte Aronsson known from “CANNIBAL FOG”.

“It seems like ages since we did “Caravan”. During the shooting I felt a bit insecure at first. I’ve never acted before. This time I was much more comfortable in my costume and makeup”, says Arielle and laughs.
Jonas: “We are like one big happy family getting together making wonderful videos. It’s always fun working with Octolab. Both Fredrik and Arielle are both very easy to work with and they give me a lot of space for ideas.



Jonas:  “It was a pleasure to make this video. Me and my DoP David Eric Nilsson played a lot with angles, different film techniques, cameras lenses, filters and masks. Masks were the essential for the video”.
The idea came from one line of the lyrics and then we just kept that. You can hide your face behind the mask or to pretend you are someone else.



More of everything

“Mind and Matter was in much larger scale than the first part. More of everything. More effects, makeup, equipment, extras and people behind the camera. We also used a lot of practical effects such as blood and gore. On the set we were nearly 20 people in the crew.
Jonas: – It’s all about the eyes! Arielle, Emelie and Ida they all have very nice eyes to look at.
The release date for “Mind and Matter” is the 9/9 2017. Prepare yourself for some suspense and action.

Lyrics:
we are the eyes
we are the ears
we are the hands
we are the eyes
living in your backyard
we are the ears hiding in your garden
we are the hands
growing in the grass you walk on
we are the eyes
living in your backyard
we are the ears
hiding in your garden
we are the hands
growing in the grass you walk on
who plays the melodies
here on your masquerade
you will remember thoughts
running in your head
we are the melodies
playing on your masquerade
we are your memorie
running in your head
we are the eyes
living in your backyard
we are the ears hiding in your garden
we are the hands
growing in the grass you walk on
we are the eyes
living in your backyard
we are the ears hiding in your garden
we are the hands
growing in the grass you walk on
we are the eyes
we are the ears
we are the hands
we are the hands
who layes behind your face, hidden thru your mask
who wears your wellington, at this time on your prom
we are the face behind hidden thru your mask
we are your wellington, dancing on your prom
we are the eyes
living in your backyard
we are the ears hiding in your garden
we are the hands
growing in the grass you walk on
we are the eyes
living in your backyard
we are the ears hiding in your garden
we are the hands
growing in the grass you walk on

Have you heard about Hermit: Monster Killer?

This has become one of the strangest scifi comedies ever produced.
Director Ola Paulakoski (Vietnam 1969 ,Werewolf Chronicles) has created a fantastic story about an old grumpy guy and his dog living in a middle of nowhere fighting a space creature who has crash landed nearby his house. Hermit has been screened on several festivals and last year it got the title Arthouse in Mumbai.
A collaboration with TeebTV and Vidio were made and HeIrmit was screened for the first time on both channels in April 2017. If you haven't watched the movie yet it's still a chance. We are going to screen it for free on TeebTV for another period.



The Predator was awesome and cut.

I remembered when I saw The Predator on VHS for the first time. I'm been having my eyes on the brochure from the renting company for nearly a month. And then finally I got the VHS rental. We put it in the machine and watched it. It was like magic but there were something missing. Like 5 min or pure violence and mayhem. The Swedish Censorship had slashed a perfect movie.
I had to wait until it came on DVD when I saw the original version. And from that day I was in heaven. The Predator has to be one of the cheesiest and coolest manbro movie ever.
Watch it on Bluray/DVD/downloader or Streamer. It doesn't matter. It's still a wonderful action thriller scifi drama with one of the hardest lines ever in film history.
