Dolls and toys getting out of control and go mad and brutal.
Music used in this video:
1) Tankist (veerot) “Sapnis”
tankist (veerot) is amongst ones of most recognized Latvian dark ambient artists with his own developed very unique sounding. His music was and continuous to be crucial in developing Latvian dark ambient genre. Listen to the artist works here.
2) Rosewater “Fasctrot”
Rosewater is the most recognized industrial band in Latvia who’s set new standart of sound quality for local industrial music. This circus-like tune while not being their style, it still does the trick for the video.
3) Converter “Reflex”
Video taken from horror film “Demonic Toys“.
Sealed behind heavy stainless steel doors, surrounded by concrete walls and being somewhere deeply underground is not an answer and escape from fears. Emergency situation is a battle for a life. For a life where every day will be emergency, be it even artificially created by a few without notice…
“Bunkergang” is a video created in collaboration with industrial music label “Sturm” and musicians from newly formed band “Autogen“. It represents our ongoing collaboration with local industrial sub-culture in Riga. Video material filmed by “Sturm” folks in real, still functional bunker. Song written by Kaspars Kalniņš from “Autogen” who is also one of the founders of former “Rosewater” – one of the most recognized industrial band in Latvia which set new quality standards and performed abroad as well.
Our team helped out with video editing, assembling all footage into one piece, laying out the “story” and adding some minor video effects.

Some time ago our team had successfully finished one of the first music-video filmed, edited and finished by ourselves.
Project was started with a goal of creating music-video with elements of horror genre. It continues a line of Horror Music Videos (HMV) we started to develop recently. Opportunity of having for a time a camera in our hands was utilized in improvised fashion. Song of choise fell on “Macabre Secrets“, song written by Mexican EBM/industrial band Dulce Liquido.
This project represents the first seeds of inspiration “sucked into” us during our creative collaboration as VJs with Latvian industrial music sub-culture and from industrial music itself.
Video deals with a desolated human-like being wandering around in abandoned, decayed building and experiencing fears from outside world.

Yogzatot Studio presents video “Army March Drawn Sword Police” for Japanese industrial / “Digital New Wave” band Gothika.
They saw our work for Latvian band “Whore Glamourama” during their performance in Riga in May 2008 and offered us to make a video on “Army March”.
This was one of our most difficult videos, took a lot of time to create conception and collect all the footage we needed.
We wanted to show interconnected and violent history of East Asia in 20th Century so we used footage from Russo-Japanese War, Chinese Civil War, Second Sino-Japanese War, WWII, Korean War, Japanese Student Protest Movements in 60th and Tiananmen Square protests of 1989.

We present our new video project where is addressed cold war theme – view on USSR with the eyes of West.
Angry, hungry Soviet Russia is coming for you, and they are going to eat you all alive and bomb everything that moves! No mercy, no democracy. Big Eye of Stalin and Nomenclatura is watching you, they want you. NKVD is going to talk with you, they have a few questions! Big Brother is watching you, even in your toilet. Nixon, Bush or any other won’t save you because Nikita Khrushchev is totally drunk and he doesn’t give a shit, he is ready to take a ride on a rocket like a cowboy. And wait for Lenin – he is packed into nuclear rocket and ready to explode in a Big Revolutionary Mushroom Cloud.
Actually in this video everyone got kicked in their asses in a final. This time somehow New/Old/Soviet World Orders didn’t impressed our imagination so on a list of concepts of world we would like to live these doesn’t fit into first places.
This video was achieved using mixture of techniques, in additional to linear editing we integrated methods of VJ – video djing by mixing video, applying real-time effects in VJ software and than recording all that chaos and adding to linear video editing. Aspect ratio of video is 4:3 which is different of our previous 16:9 videos. That’s mostly because of added VJ techniques where more preferable is video of 4:3 aspect ratio since these are common dimensions of projector screens while live music events. We also acknowledge that video isn’t in best possible quality – source files weren’t best ones.
