The past Sunday concluded in Guadalajara the shooting of Wére in this to
together, of the double The disc fragile, the group Nine Inch Nails
Those were 250 young men dressed black that descended yesterday like in
explosion by the incline of the unevenness that crosses the road Independence
in its crossing the Hidalgo avenue. It was with this image with which Sunday
was finished rolling videoclip Wére in this to together, of the American band of
alternative music Nine Inch Nails.
The last day of shooting began with the spirits tightened between the director
Mark Pellington and his subordinates, after which Saturday a storm -- to six of
afternoon -- in the dry lagoon of Sayula almost spoiled the running.
And while this happened, Trent Reznor, leader of Nine Inch Nails, remained
shut in in his dressing room to the delay of his takings, after to have filmed,
from the past Thursday, 5 of August, in Guadalajara, the first video of his
simple of the double The disc fragile. The leases were a house by the district
of Mexicaltzingo, in the station of the railroad, the dry lagoon of Sayula and the
unevenness of the road Independence.
According to Sergio explained Gutiérrez, of the department of production of the
video, the way that took to Nine Inch Nails to film in Guadalajara thanked to
that the director selected to the American company Cinesouth to roll. Although
one thought about filming originally in the city of Mexico, where Cinesouth has
offices, " it was that Guadalajara was lent far better to which the director
needed ", said.
And all the voltage, product of a rate of 20 daily takings evaporated to 18:57
hours of the last Sunday, when the three film cameras shot for the last time to
film to marabunta of enraged extras running towards the director, while the
sound equipment reproduced one of the climatic moments of Wére in this to
The voice of Mark Pellington was let listen by a loudspeaker: " We got it " (we
have it), which followed the shouts of joy of the extras, that were let go on
Pellington and Trent Reznor, who congratulated his director, and in spite of its
bodyguards could not avoid the flashazos of the cameras of the own extras. To
few meters of Reznor, his agent mounted in rage when seeing surrounded
represented his between the extras, and she did not stop to shout " not
pictures, not fucking pictures ". This contrasted with the congratulations in
English of Pellington to the tapatíos extras.
" They are of the best equipment with those than I have worked, it has been a
pleasure to be with you these four days ", also shouted to all lung the director
of videoclips Jeremy, for Pearl Jam, and Beautiful girl, for INXS, as well as of
tapes the promised gift, Schwarzenegger, and the one of next Arlington opening
road, with Tim Robbins and Jeff Bridges.
For the photography assistant, Sergio Ulloa, photographer of the cortometrajes
of animation Without support and Until the bones, of René Castillo, as well as
of the eighth day, Juan Medina and Rita Basulto (these last two in shooting), in
addition to to have directed for Pretty the video Your flower, " were all a
experience working with people of the First World, and verifying that the people
of Guadalajara we are at the same level, although we need the budget with
which they work. It had never been called on me to work with three cameras
that did not stop to spend tins and tins of film, whereas here in Mexico, for an
animation, for example, you are spent a tin to the month ".
Ulloa emphasized that " it worked almost all along with natural light. It is going
enough to be a quite dark video, in that we recorded to invidente and burned
people in a wagon, with aesthetic dark. Something peculiar was that, although
Reznor is a rock star, 95 percents of people did not know it. Reason why I saw,
the history of the video turns around a trip of Reznor in which it fights against
its fears, like the solitude ".
