Blackmagic Design announced that DP Clint Byrne shot the music video for Postmodern Jukebox’s “Don’t Stop Believin’” rendition using a Blackmagic URSA Mini Pro digital film camera and Video Assist 4K monitor and recorder. Byrne captured the entire music video in one shot, following the musicians around a crowded house as a party unfolds around them.

Scott Bradlee’s Postmodern Jukebox (PMJ) is a rotating music collective that puts pop music in a time-machine, reworking modern music and classic hits into different vintage genres. Originally founded by pianist Scott Bradlee in New York City, the band has featured more than 70 different performers and has toured five continents. The viral juggernaut has amassed more than 900 million views on YouTube alone, with more than 3.1 million subscribers and more than 1.3 million followers on Facebook.

The concept for the music video came from Bradlee and Director Abraham Roofeh. “Postmodern Jukebox is known for having impressive one take live recordings that showcase the band performing in one space. We wanted to try a different spin on that idea by keeping things as one take, but while on the move,” Roofeh explained. “‘Don’t Stop Believin’ embodies hope while struggling, so we wanted to juxtapose two worlds in the video, setting it during a lavish party but following the staff instead of the partygoers. We start by focusing on the band so it looks like one of their normal videos, but then it’s hijacked by a singing server walking by and we’re taken on a wild ride throughout the space, weaving around the house and letting the story unfold.”
