A fun video for Battles by New York City-based filmmaker Colin Read (previously featured here). “Fort Greene Park” explores the evolution of solo locomotion, featuring 20 different forms of transport from crawling on all fours to wheeled vehicles and more! The project came together on a small budget with a mix of planning and improvisation over the course of just two days. As Read shared with us:

“In the initial discussions with the band, they said that they wanted to avoid it feeling silly or too funny. But I think they started to love how ridiculous the concept was, and soon were throwing out ideas like ‘Let’s get some close-up of me blowing bubble gum!’ And once we were at the actual shoot, it was just so surreal and insane that everyone embraced the madness. But in the end, I think the video rides a nice line of being fun and bizarre while still pointing toward something more focused and meaningful.”
