    Haha top clip. I always felt a little bit gay listening to the song, not knowing whether I should be enjoying it or not. This video hasn't helped.

    We've now passed 10,000 plays. We're averaging around 2500 plays a day. Absolutely fucking insane!!

    Be nice if every play gave us a dollar, hey? HAHA!

    How long were you in the charts for and did any commercial radio stations take notice of this?

    I dont think commerical radio stations care too much about youtube charts. Seeing as the video was only released last thurs arvo, then yeah we havent been in those charts long.

    I thought he meant the music charts in general i.e. singles, etc. that goes to show how much attention I pay to them.

    I do know if there's a big sale in say one record store that is monitored you can get a spike sending a song to number 1 even, like some unknown Christian band when all their CD's were bought at one Christian record store.

    It is very short lived though, thus is also the case when a Metal band releases new material.

    I've not paid attention to the charts in about 20 years, apart from when Far Beyond Driven went straight to number one. Are they still a big thing in this era of electronic downloads?

    The picture quality of the clip's awesome. What sort of camera did you use?

    I think Video Hits and 'pop' radio stations still rely on them to a degree however they are biased, the last incident anywhere near Metal was probably when the Disturbed album went to no. 1 - I didn't recall hearing/seeing any Disturbed, it wasn't on the charts long I don't think. That's the thing with a small fanbase, the sales tend to spike.

    The quality of the clip does look good, my guess - film was used rather than video?

    Definitely not film, that would have made the clip unbelievably expensive! That said, my post processing of the footage had a lot of film grain and other effects added to it to get that film look about it.

    Believe it or not, it was shot on a digital still camera that could also do 1080p video recording. It wasn't designed as a video camera primarily, but it could do the job. Put some quality lenses on it, and you have some pretty fantastic looking shots (as you would get from any quality digital movie camera with good lenses).

    The other thing that's really making it look big budget is we used a lot of dolly shots (like the camera on tracks moving with the performer) and a lot of depth of focus shots where the subject was in focus but the background wasn't.

    Really happy how the clip came up, hopefully the next two we have in the works look as good. The next one especially is proving to be a bastard to do, but it should come up good with any luck! :)

    Has anyone tried whoring it on gay/tranny forums?

    The film clip that is. :lol:

    Kylie does have a huge following in that market.

    I think that would be playing with a bit of fire. It may be perceived that we're taking the piss out of the community instead of taking the piss out of ourselves. Anyone got any friends in the LGBT community that they could test the clip on privately?

    I didn't see it as taking the piss out of them.

    A girl I know found the lead to be eye-candy, I'm pretty sure that community would too, they also have a thing for blondes.
