In our music video the band members make up for the entire cast. The band members consisted of an all male, late teen group. We felt it was easier just to have the band as the cast due to practical purposes and for direction it was easier to control a smaller number of people. When filming the werewolf scenes we used one of the band members who wasn't filming or whoever was holding the camera at the time. The members of the band fit in with the typical audience of the genre young males, this is also a convention of metalcore bands the members are made up of young males between the age of 15-24.
When we filmed we gave the band a uniform appearance by making everyone where skinny jeans, a black t shirt and trainers however we did change this up with the vocalists outfit. We made the vocalists outfit appear different because we wanted to single him out as the front man of the band.
