    Laura Mvula’s “Phenomenal Woman” shot with Thread

    31 May 2016

    Moonlighting’s digital company Thread just shot Laura Mvula’s music video “Phenomenal Woman” with Director Alex Southam and London Alley. We shot in 1 day in Cape Town’s Bo-Kaap, working in 2 -3 minute sessions to allow for no lock-offs and the area’s 5 prayer times. UK stylist Alex Noble (stylist for Lady Gaga) designed costumes and we cast locally with mostly professional dancers.

    Evergreen – Tresor and The Kiffness

    23 February 2016

    8 music videos down, 1 to go in the Sony Xperia Mashlab project being produced by our digital company Thread. The 7th is   Evergreen, a collaboration by Tresor & The Kiffness, directed by Quinton Lavery, that – as voted by Sony Xperia Mashlab fans – combines “Tarantino tunes & summer vibes”. It’s high in the national charts and playing on MYV and Trace. We shot it on Seapoint Beach at sunset and invited fans to come and be extras. Very cool, you’ll love it. Here are some pic. Videos to follow. #Sony Xperia Mashlab #5FM #Tresor #The Kiffness #Evergreen #Thread

    Thread and Sony Xperia Mashlab

    19 August 2015

    Moonlighting’s digital company “Thread” are into their 3rd month of running Sony Xperia “Mashlab” on South Africa’s most popular youth radio station 5FM.  Conceived by Thread’s Jon Savage, Mashlab is an online, interactive music “lab” which, each month, produces a new song & music video developed entirely by the fans and performed by their choice of well-known South African artists. (The last Mashlab included bands Seether and The Parlotones.) Fans vote which artist should collaborate via social media; they send song ideas, develop lyrics and design the album. Artists are filmed and footage streamed through the Sony Xperia site culminating in a live concert for all 10 tracks.  True digital integration in one project.  The music video of Mashlab #1’s “Caviar Dreams”, performed by Al Bairre and PHFAT was released by Sony Xperia last week; Mashlab #2’s “Addicted to Scars” is a collaboration of Kwesta and Black Motion; Mashlab #3 ‘s collaboration between David Kramer and Toya Delazy is in production.
