JUNIOR JACK & PAT BDS DELIVER HEROIC VIDEO GAME INSPIRED MUSIC VIDEO FOR HOUSE HEATER ‘TECKY DREAM’
Check out this Tecky Dream. Junior Jack & Pat BDS deliver a cinematically futuristic, heroic music video for their melodic house heater ‘Tecky Dream’. The video was directed by Mike Anderson and Ryan Dickie and together they create an analog of the last year using video game engines and motion caption. While the track itself is catchy and dynamic, the video has a futuristic almost Tron-like feel to me at first. Then the whole video shifts to share other aspects of video games.
Originally, the track was released in 2020 on Junior Jack & Pat BDS’ own Adesso Music imprint. ‘Tecky Dream’ instigates tension and rising energy by integrating slow building synths and elevating bass tones. The track has a rich, cinematic feel, driving intensity which is captured in the video. Honestly, I feel the video captures the song’s essence entirely.
Tecky Dream and the Video
The video follows a narrative of a hero in a relentless, escalating chase scene. For instance, the video corresponds with the times we find ourselves in; charging forward, trying to stay alive and well, with ever-changing threats nipping at our heels. I honestly felt like I was watching a cut scene from a true video game.
“The hero has a past, and the story has an ending, but for these four minutes, the intensity of the sequence is all that matters. The video is dream-like, with unanswered questions and mysteries locked inside the narrative.”
Mike Anderson & Ryan Dickie
The video was inspired by cut scenes and trailers for AAA video games. With that inspiration, Junior Jack & Pat BDS bring us a futuristic animated apocalyptic video for ‘Tecky Dream’ filled with ceaseless energy.
“Combining a video game development pipeline with a cinematic track, we built a project that pushed the boundaries of our practice. We’ve been collaborating on different projects for ten years, and we’re always searching for ways to reinvent our approach, always trying to find something new. For us, ‘Tecky Dream’ opened up a high-energy, collaborative approach to storytelling that was a perfect fit for the project.”
