Five Finger Death Punch just finished a video for the Top 5 track “Remember Everything” in Los Angeles. It was filmed over three days (February 1, 2, and 3), and is a narrative driven, visually arresting clip. There is no band performance, with the band members featured as cast via cameos. The clip was directed by Emile Levisetti, who has directed episodes of Bones, and two series that were created by Prospect Park (Wilfred and Royal Pains). The company also is the label for Five Finger Death Punch, so there is some clear synergy here and that is the avenue that brings Emile Levisetti to the collaboration.
In regards to the treatment, this video tells an emotional story. It begins in a white setting, with a young boy representing the innocent subconscious. The boy, age 3, starts to draw on this “box,” offering primitive imagery that provides the entry point to the live action vignettes. As the boy grows, the drawings utilize other instruments (sharpie, markers, spray paint, etc…), each leading to live action vignettes capturing additional moments in his life. Through the clip from beginning to end, a representation of all of the memories within his mind are shared. As he grows, the walls become more covered, until they are completely filled.
