zZz is playing: Grip, is the first video of Roel Wouters aka Xelor. it's a one take, top shot music video with trampoline gymnasts simulating typical video effects. The video has been recorded live, as part of the opening 'Nederclips' at the Stedelijk museum 's-Hertogenbosch SM'S (curated by Bart Rutten).
The project was commissioned by the TAX-videoclipfonds. The important
criteria were that the audience at the opening would be able to witness the whole shoot, and that the videoclip would be added to the exhibition
immediately after the shoot. This meant we had no option to reshoot or edit if something went wrong. This made the whole crew so focussed that we
performed even better than any of us could have imagined.
