Music videos have become an intrinsic part of releasing music in the modern age, and have the ability to elevate a good song into a truly powerful and engaging piece of art.
We thoroughly enjoy flexing our creative muscles by regularly producing all sorts of music videos for all sorts of music styles. We pride ourselves on our high concept narratives, captivating performance scenes, and uniquely vivid imagery – and always ensure that the musicians we work with are completely satisfied with the product and enjoy our process of collaboration and creation.
Our music videos have featured on Rage, MTV Australia and various music news outlets such as The Music, ClippedTV and MusicFeeds.
In a parallel dystopian universe where NERVE has been kidnapped by an evil music label and forced to perform in a computer simulation, only his true friends – the NO.ONE NETWORK – are willing to meet in the shadows and risk their lives to rescue their former leader. With a high concept sci-fi narrative drawn from our favorite films such as The Matrix and Blade Runner, ‘Missed Calls’ illustrates how director Julian D’Arcy is able to tap into a large network of Brisbane’s most talented stylists, MUAs and production designers to create a cinematic experience that is thoroughly integrated with an artist’s brand. The edit combines ONYX’s sleek, high spec cinematic visual style with a gritty analogue aesthetic that was authentically captured on Super 8 and MiniDV cameras.
Colours Inside My Mind
A hybrid of chaotic performance and a minimalist narrative, Director Adam Hasa built this concept from the ground up; closely working with Stonehaven to deliver a clip that represented both the energy of the song, and its deeper meaning. Working with complex rigging and programming, this approach, while technically challenging, gave us ultimate freedom to light and shoot in a way that elevated this clip outside of the contemporary Metal-Genre conventions.
Melodic Hardcore is a genre of extremes and contrasts, heavy beats, shrieking screams but also soft melodies and soaring vocals, we knew we had to create a clip that portrayed these powerful emotive states. The clip’s genesis came from a stark image the Director Adam saw when listening to the opening riffs of the song: a chaotic chase through brooding bush sprang into his head and the rest of the music video grew organically from there. Combining intensely colourful performance pieces in an abandoned industrial space then inverting with a frantic chase scene in gritty monochrome in an endless forest, this clip not only captured Empire Within’s energy and power but also the nuanced themes of the song.
Fear of Missing Out
Studio performance videos have the innate ability to to capture a slightly more raw, authentic image and sound of a musician. By combining live performances, studio-level audio engineering and ONYX’s inherently cinematic visuals, our studio performance videos offer an endearing insight into an artist that strips away the pretense of a music video and puts the audience in the room with the musician.
Fear of Missing Out (Underground Sessions) is a three-way collaboration between ONYX, Brisbane-based recording studio Underground Audio and Melbourne-based artist Anslie Wills.
Ain't Got You
Playfully portraying the frontman of the band as a travelling bible salesman spreading the ‘gospel’ of Rock n Roll, ‘Ain’t Got You’ blends a Hollywood-level shooting style and equipment with an authentically local aesthetic. Director Julian D’Arcy created a cartoonishly humorous story that enhanced and reaffirmed the ‘over-the-top’ old school Rock n Roll style of the music, as well as generated a marketing motif for the band to use in its marketing of the song and subsequent tour.
