The Clean – 1981
This video marked the directing debut of Chris Knox. Capturing the energy of the classic Clean song, the clip memorably broke with NZ promo standards (in-studio lip-synching etc), and set the template for Knox’s cheap-but-effective DIY method. Knox shot the band walking up the street, with a borrowed 16mm camera set at a slow frame rate. He also played around with negative reversal film to obtain some of the video's more distinctive images.
