"We arrived on location at 4PM on a Saturday in July, and the crew had already been up for over 24 hours," frontman Rolf Klausener tells Spinner. "We ate and then hauled ass in the back of a flatbed to a small forest on the other side of a gigantic soy plantation. The whole process was shot in stop motion; so, we spent the next 20 hours, mostly sitting on a picnic table that was jerry-rigged to a rail cart, moving in two-inch increments."
"The crew was tireless and totally focused," Klausener continues. "The cyanide-based smoke machine they used took about six years off our lives. By 7AM, everyone was delirious, seeing apparitions in the foliage and speaking in tongues. We napped for 15 minutes and then drove seven hours back to Ottawa. None of it seemed real -- neither the location, the crew, nor the lights that were emanating from deep in the woods."
Yes, the result is as trippy as it sounds, but those lights are real -- it's the forest itself that we're not so sure about. Awake or dreaming, there's some truly fantastical things going on. You'll definitely want to check this one out for yourself, after the jump.
