The Paselode Story

Short Film (Full Length) – 2004

Parental Guidance

Wellington rockers Paselode certainly weren’t the first band to conquer, argue, then combust; but this film offers an unusual view on the group’s internal dynamics. Inspired by the legendary Creature Comforts films by Aardman Animation, The Paselode Story takes real-life interviews with bandmembers, and animates the results. Expect possibly tongue-in-cheek revelations of how singer Gerome Mills charmed — or bribed — his way into his brother’s band with his Dad’s help, before revealing his true colours. There are also live action scenes of Paselode in action.

They were pretty reluctant about me coming along. They thought I was going to be a tyrant, and just put them down [...]. But all their fears went out the window and they realised I was a lovely guy.
– Singer Gerome Mills
