The Wolf

Asian Envy’s successfully crowdfunded music video ‘The Wolf’, which raised almost $8,000 in 2014, has been awarded best music video at the ‘Made in Melbourne’ film festival.

Band members Steve Edwards and Ross Larkin were present at the ceremony to accept the award.

Directed by last year’s Tropfest winner, Julian Lucas, the production of ‘The Wolf’ involved more than 50 cast and crew on location in Flinders (Victoria, Australia) and was financially backed by 136 people from all over the world.

It serves as a prequel to the band’s previous video, The Beautiful Girls and Boys (directed by Julyan Stephens)

Help Asian Envy make their next video

Asian Envy launched their brand new music video this month (‘The Beautiful Girls & Boys’).

The unusual and intriguing video is set at a wedding reception which breaks into bizarre chaos as one of the wait staff seduce the bride before the groom’s eyes!

It’s a comical and energetic video with a splash of sinister undertone (in keeping with the overall concept of the album, ‘Everyone [Except You]’).

The video was premiered to terrific applause at Melbourne’s ‘The 86’ in Collingwood, where the duo also launched a Kickstarter campaign to raise funds for their next music video ‘The Wolf’ – another instalment in the ongoing narrative.

The pair are aiming to raise $6,000 by Valentine’s Day, and are so far a quarter of the way there.

THE ANIMALS WILL COME

[singlepic id=68 w=320 h=240 float=left] I’ve been working on the upcoming video for our track The Animals Will Come . The video was shot on green screen and I thought it’d be cool to give a bit of insight into the project as it develops. So here are a few screen grabs of the rough art direction just to whet your appetite.

We’ve had a great response to people becoming Asian Envy fans on facebook and although we despise myspace we’ll be getting our page up and running shortly.
