Atari Teenage Riot wants YOU to be in their video for “Black Flags.”

Tim Gauthier

Atari Teenage Riot puts a great deal of thought into their videos and if you are an ATR fan and this is something you might be interested in, see below to learn more about “Black Flags,” the political ideals of ATR, and how to get involved.

 

 

 
 


Atari Teenage Riot – Black Flags (Viral)

Producer: Atari Teenage Riot
Editing and parts of the filming: Marty
Actors: ATR, ATR fans up to the world’s population

 
 
Concept:

Atari Teenage Riot wants to make a video statement with their new single “Black Flags” and involve their fans and others who support the idea behind the song.

In the past decade we have witnessed how dangerous corruption can be for ordinary citizens (from Fukushima to the financial crisis, we could even include the current phone hacking scandals in the UK in this. The list goes on. Almost weekly more shocking news is being published).

Corporate greed has too often put the lives of people in danger. Many ask themselves if Washington is still run by elected politicians or instead by the lobbyists of multinational corporations.

Citizens point the finger at individual politicians and try to blame them, however, it is becoming clearer and clearer that this is a global problem. There is a similar pattern in many different countries all over the world.

Historically, the Black Flag stood for not belonging to a certain Nation State (due to the fact that no national colours were used on it). For the band it means also that no individual can look at him/herself as superior to others just because of his/her national identity.

The mainstream media often looks at ‘consumers’ and labels them as ‘apathetic’. We see the exact opposite at our concerts. And not only that… The protests around the world indicate that at this point in time there is more political activism than ever before.

Cynics always find many reasons for not doing anything and being miserable. Often they say that the world is too ‘complex’ to get involved. We believe that even though the world is complex, there are some fundamental ideas which are powerful. Respect for another human being, for example, is a fundamental idea which grants great power.

If you agree to the basic principles of equality and freedom, join us and make a statement!

The visuals of Atari Teenage Riot videos have always been very important. Directors like Philipp Virus, Andrea Giacobbe, John Hillcoat, and Zan Lyons have done an excellent job in working together with the band and getting the message across to a wide audience.

Remember ‘Speed’, ‘Revolution Action’, ‘Too Dead For Me’ or ‘Activate’, we want ‘Black Flags’ to follow in those footsteps but with one key difference: We want you to be in it!

Atari Teenage Riot has started working on the video already. If you want to be in the video and show that you support the ideals mentioned above, please send us the following footage:

– take your mobile phone, webcam or any other camera and film yourself lip-synching the song (lyrics below)

– have a black flag in the background, or hold it while you’re lip-syncing. (The black flag motif will link all images together. If you don’t have one to hand, use a black t-shirt, pull it inside out, stick the arms into it…there you go.)

– you can choose any location for it. If you want to do it at home, great. If you know a crazy location, do it there. (In front of your school or university? At a shopping mall? With your friends at a party?)

– We will use fragments of all videos which are sent in and ultimately add all of you to the official video.

The video will be online and we will fill in the blank spots more and more over the coming weeks until the new single is released. But the process will not end with the release of the single. We have remixes coming! So if you have a great idea that you can put in place after the release date, do it, we will keep adding as long as we are getting material from you all!

– If you want to support the idea but want to do so anonymously, you can cover your face. No problem.

– Please always send in a video link to this email : blackflags@atari-teenage-riot.net
(don’t attach the files directly please.)

 
 

Up to the release of Black Flags Atari Teenage Riot will perform at these festivals:

29.07.2011 KR-Seoul, Jisan Valley Rock Festival
31.07.2011 JP-Yuzawa, Niigata, Fuji Rock Festival ’11

Right now the band is working out a way to access the public area and film it with you!
So make sure you bring a black flag or wear a black t-shirt, you can appear together in the video with ATR.

Any questions?

Just ask! 🙂

 
 

Now to the next step…

If you want to go a step further, we want to introduce you to

“Corpsing” – the silent protest for all people who have died as a result of corporate greed.

Planking has been probably the most fun trend since break dancing. When ATR waited at an airport in Southern Europe, they did quite a lot of planks in the silliest locations, until some airport authorities tried to stop them. (Yes, it was after a huge concert, no photos were made, and no tweets were made…) From that the idea of “corpsing” developed through public appearances of Anonymous and from the acts of political activists in China!

How can one make people pay attention to something very serious and important if adverts scream at you all the time until you shut down all senses?

ATR has already tested it in some places in Berlin to see the reaction.

Alec Empire lay down on his back, like a corpse, and put a black flag over his head/face. Apart from it being a very strong image, many people stopped and did what they are supposed to: Ask a question! To our surprise people from all kinds of backgrounds immediately understood and supported what we were talking about.

So if you have a friend or another person who can film you corpsing/protesting in silence, PLEASE SEND IT IN.

The release date of Black Flags is only days away from 9/11. When we realized that it has been ten years, and when we looked at how many have used deaths of real people for their own political and economical greed since then, the original idea of the song made so much more sense again.

If you agree, film yourself in public places, even on the dance floor, wherever you can raise awareness and send it to us!

We will include you in the video.

Out Now: Atari Teenage Riot – ‘Blood In My Eyes’

Tim Gauthier

 

 
 
ATARI TEENAGE RIOTS – ‘Blood In My Eyes’ features Nic Endo on lead vocal. She speaks out for the multitude of women who have become the victims of human trafficking, their sexuality exploited for financial gain right under the gaze of the ineffectual governments of the self-proclaimed civilised west. Nic, wholly in tune with her trademark Japanese face-paint depicting “Resistance,” makes her point in the inimitable Atari way..

Video: Steve Aoki & Sidney Samson “Wake Up Call” Feat. Michelle Rodriguez & Clifton Collins Jr.

Tim Gauthier

“I have been wanting to take a different approach with my music videos. When I heard this track and found out that Michelle Rodriguez and Clifton Collins Jr. were interested, I immediately knew it would work. As you’ll see, I took a more cinematic approach and used the music as a score. Working with all the actors (including Steve) was amazing and each of them brought incredible energy as you will see. A big thank you to Michelle, Clifton and Steve for letting me push as far as I did.

As far as the concept, I’ll let you figure it out.” – Jason Beattie (Director)

Video: Childish Gambino – “Freaks & Geeks”

Tim Gauthier

Childish Gambino (Donald Glover) released a video for his track “Freaks & Geeks” a few days ago.
The video helps to get a visual feel for the track.

I’m pretty sure this was shot on a Canon 5D and it seems to be all in one take…Pretty amazing.

If you don’t know who Donald Glover is…Check out his Wiki.

Josh Forbes
 

 

 
The World Class Driver video was directed by Josh Forbes. His interpretation of the track and inspiration for the video:
 
The concept for this video came from the lyric “take it real slow”. It sounded like something an old person might say. The next lyric is “so put the pedal to the floor”, which made me think of an old person rolling down the street like a badass in a Rascal scooter.
 
From there it became a game of “what sort of depraved things can I get old people to do?” and “how can we put an old person spin on it?” So instead of doing heroin, the guy’s freebasing Werther’s Original, and instead of watching some hardcore porn, they’re watching a video of Angela Lansbury giving herself a massage in a hot tub.
 
This is one of my favorite videos of all-time, even if I hadn’t made it. Apparently it creeps people out, but for me it’s just pure delight. It reminds me of Werner Herzog’s “Even Dwarves Started Small”, a movie about a group of insane Little People who take over their asylum and create their own micro-society. I like the idea of a world overrun by crazy old people. It scares the hell out of me.
