It is not uncommon for internationally screened music videos to have been shot in South Africa. Normally, the concept and music is the work of overseas producers, simply exploiting the financial advantages of shooting in SA. This time the product is 100% South African!
We asked Paul Blom, Terminatryx bassist, co-writer & producer, as well as director of the video, about how they managed to accomplish some of the breathtaking visual effects of transforming the band’s vocalist, Sonja Ruppersberg, into a werewolf. He accredited a number of co-conspirators in the project such as the team from Cosmesis Advanced Prosthetic Studio; Visual Impact / Magus assisting with camera supply; director of photography Marnus Tredoux; Silver Bullet Lighting; and an underestimated essential element, smoke sculptor Kevin Bitters.
Clinton, from Cosmesis, is widely known in the local film industry for his make-up and prosthetics work in international films such as The Last House On The Left remake, Laconia and Death Race 2. Kevin has also worked on movies like District 9.
