Instrumental supergroup STERLING EQ launched theirdebut music video, NOVA – The Movie at a high profile media preview at Fashion TV Cape Town on Wednesday 2 December 2009. Theresponse from the audience wasoverwhelming, according to the press release. The video was also screened as a comprehensive “behind the scenes’ insert on M-Net’s All Access show last week.
The video based on the title track of Sterling’s debut album, Nova, was directed by SAMA-Award winning director Lara Hollis andsupported bya30-piece specialistfilm crew. This music videorequired a total of35 costume changes (including some amazingGavin Rajah outfits)andno less than 30 locations, spanning over 50 years of cinema.
Lara has done a breathtaking job, says Carina, flautist and leader of the quartet. We could not have asked for a more amazing concept, we believe it captures everything Sterling encompasses at the moment – glamour, beauty, talent, power, emotion, strength, and most of all, FUN! We had a great time reenacting various scenes from iconic movies, and it was challenging but fun trying to briefly fill the acting shoes of Marilyn Monroe, Audrey Hepburn, Charlize Theron and Angelina Jolie, amongst others. We’re confident that the video will appeal to a wide audience, and are very excited about the response!
Sterling announced at the video launch that they will be performing a large scale show at the Artscape Opera House on 13 February @ 20:00 , which will be filmed for their Live DVD. Tickets are available at Computicket.
