In an entirely new concept, Speight’s Summit and rock band, I Am Giant immortalised the last Big Day Out in Auckland by filming and editing an entire music video in one day.

Twenty crew worked tirelessly from 7.30am – 5.30pm filming thousands of festival-goers. The 6098 frames were cut and edited at Mount Smart Stadium before the final product was rushed over to the stage and shown to the crowd as the finale to I Am Giant’s set at 7pm.

Director, Greg Page from Fish and Clips says “I've always loved animation, and I love shooting rock clips. This was a mad combination of both and the coolest thing was; we did it for real, using old school techniques and thousands of enthusiastic fans. I was in a daze as I stood under the big screen with the band and watched the clip play for the first time. Rock and roll at its best.”

I Am Giant’s ‘Purple Heart’ video will be available online for people to view on the Summit Facebook page, where there are FREE downloads of the ‘Purple Heart’ track available and those lucky enough to make the cut will also be able to tag themselves in it.
