Evil Scarecrow | Video production

Half a million views (and counting) and videos the fans love.

The client

A unique band with a unique brand.

Evil Scarecrow are a parody heavy metal band based in Nottingham. We’re big fans - in fact, two members of the Rusty Monkey studio are in the band. The Evil Scarecrow brand is all about making heavy metal more lighthearted and silly.

The brief

A remarkable music video experience.

The band needed some new music videos to fit their whacky style and appeal to their fan-base. We had ambitious plans to create some technically demanding concepts, which would require all of the studio’s video and animation expertise.

What we created

Videos that are as entertaining as a live show.

Working with a limited budget and some rather genius hand-made props, we created a series of music videos showcasing the band’s latest hits.

The 360° Hurricanado video was shot in a single exhausting take.

The psychedelic experience that is the Ballad of Brother Pain was animated from scratch, including 25 frame-per-second walk cycles.

Supernatural mischief befell the camera crew during the shooting of Polterghost.

Bespoke hand-crafted puppets were used to bring this Thunderbirds spoof to life.

The result

Award-nominated music videos.

Once captured, the videos went through a rigorous post-production process to give them that final polish. Boosted by online promotion, they have now received half a million views (and counting) and made a lot of fans happy.

We love our vids! But it's not about what we think. Here's what the fans are saying: 'Brilliant, this crazy bunch should have their own tv show!'
