Watch Mumrunner’s first ever music video for ‘Cascais’

It’s taken awhile, but Mumrunner finally made a video

Fresh off a very busy and well received European Tour, Mumrunner return with their first ever music video for ‘Cascais’.  ‘Cascais’ has been a particular favourite for fans of the band from last years highly rated Gentle Slopes Ep. The band give us some words about the video

“The idea of ​the​ video was to put​ ​the band members ​amongst the scenario ​and scenery of ​W​orld ​War II. ​The ​video was shot with an old 16mm film camera from the early ​19​60’s to achieve ​a ​similar feeling and ​picture quality ​with​ the​ ​used ​archive material​,​ so it’s hard to tell which ​shots ​are old and which​ are n​ew.​”​​

Director: Otto Heikola
Producer: Valtteri Munkki
DoP: Otso Lahti
Editors: Otto Heikola & Anniina Kauttonen
Colorist: Valtteri Munkki
Location scout: Mikko Heino
Production company: Side Stories

Director Otto Heikola​​ has more details on the video: “The inspiration for the song had come from an actual event in which boyish behaviour lead to tragedy. In the music video we decided to do something thematically similar, but on a much larger scale, set in the violent events of World War II with the band becoming part of the action.​”​​

Original footage shot on 16mm film (Kodak Vision2 250D 7205) with Arriflex 16 BL. Camera rented from Teekkarien elokuvakerho Montaasi. Studio provided by OUBS. Film purchased from P. Mutasen Elokuvakonepaja and developed & digitized by Andec Filmtechnik.

Archival footage licensed through Buyout Footage (1940s US Navy) and Pond5 (boy on beach)

Mumrunner’s next live outing will be opening for Choir Of Young Believers at Helsinki’s Tavastia on the 17th February.
