Description

A teen is told he's dying.... he begs to differ. The official music video for Brick + Mortar's single "Staying Gold" "There are two types of people in the world: criers and non-criers.... In case you’re not sure which of the two buckets you fall into, watch Brick + Mortar’s new video “Staying Gold.” The New Jersey duo—consisting of Brandon Asraf (bass, vocals) and John Tacon (drums, electric samples, vocals)—pull heavily on the heartstrings through their depiction of a sickly youth in a hospital bed, sitting anxiously as monitors beep and nurses flutter. In the spirit of punk rock insurgence, a friend helps bail him out, leading him to a world where the once-sickly boy is doing all the things kids should do—breaking into private pools for rowdy skateboarding, running through tree leaden suburbs aimlessly, drinking beer and flirting with girls. And duh, taking selfies." -Mathias Rosenzweig // Noisey.com "Brick + Mortar released some powerful visuals for their single, "Staying Gold"..." -PrimaryWave.com "Moving through shots in soft focus and light we see a sick kid quite literally transform into who he once was before hospitals, doctors, and beeping machines" -PittsburghMusicMagazine.com "To us, Staying Gold is a rebellious anthem from an angsty kid making a statement that he's good, no matter what. We follow him in this film, who despite his incredibly difficult circumstances is strong as ever when he's with his friends. He stays gold." -BLURRED Written and Directed: Rosco Guerrero Director of Photography: Fredo Jones 1st A.C : Waylon Kane Key Grip: Tyler Stocker 1st AD: Daniel Alvarez CAST: Keever Randall, Buggy Salazar, Syd Hines, Terrill "Whiskey" Schmidt, K Quinn Marchman, Alex Harz, Eric "Earlygrabs" McEachron, Rebecca Jean Special Thanks The Lookout, Skate Colorado, Tuck's Pool Gear: Sony fs 700 Odyssey 7q Shot in 4k to ProRes 1080 Canon Cine Prime Lens Kit 100% handheld Edited in Adobe Premier Pro CC by Rosco Guerrero Color Graded in Adobe Premier Pro CC by Waylon Kane Exported in Quicktime to H264 1080 Video by BLURRED blurredpictures.co
