Parkway Drive ‘The Greatest Fear’

M

ulti-ARIA award winning James Trevor Chappell worked with a concept from PWD frontman Winston McCall and Hype Republic’s creative director Josh Weier to help reimagine death as a unifying force that connects all paths. Searching for a way to balance the morose choir and organ with heavy guitar riffs and drums led to a mix of studio and outdoor locations. To execute, we spent two days shooting inside a Brisbane warehouse studio with a diverse crew, then road tripped across NSW finding cotton fields, sand dunes, forests and ocean spots. An imposing monolith added by VFX was the final touch to creating this otherworldly concept.
