When Q asked if I wanted to shoot The Dums I could pick any city on their US tour calendar. I picked Tallahassee, it has some amazing swamp locations surrounding it. I arranged for a couple of boats and picked up the lantern at an antiques shop on the way to the shoot. I stood knee deep in the swamp when I shot these angles, camera tethered into a laptop, we kind of checked for alligators before I went in.
I shot My Chemical Romance for Q magazine in London. Q suggested doing a Blade Runner theme, which of course is hugely set extensive and expensive. I google-mapped-street-viewed the surrounding of the studio we had booked to see how I can utilize existing structures. I used one of the entrances to the building and all I needed were a few neon signs, some pipes and wires, a smoke machine, add some water, and we were in Blade Runner city.
