There are a handful of music video directors whom I truly admire and always look forward to seeing their work. Mitch Massie, the man behind “Forced Gender Reassignment“. Phil Mucci, who did Stone Sour‘s “Do Me A Favor“. And then there is Michael Panduro, who directed two music videos that we at Bloody-Disgusting got to premiere: Cephalic Carnage‘s “Ohrwurm” and “Tarnished Gluttony” from Job For A Cowboy.
Panduro’s work always has a very high budget look and is never afraid to go in as close to the meat and bones (pun intended) as necessary, while also having the strength to pull back and expose the entire scene. Then there is the fact that he seems to be able to tackle any story with the same amount of intensity and commitment as any other project. There is a signature to his style, something that makes me able to watch a video and think, “This is definitely done by Michael Panduro.” It’s like hearing a particular guitar tone and knowing right away, even without hearing a single word, “This is [insert band name here].”
And now Michael needs our help. With all the amazing horror-influenced music videos and short films he has produced, Panduro has turned his eye to making Postpartum, a full-length feature horror film that he describes as a “Cronenberg’s “The Brood” mixed with Von Trier’s “Antichrist”“. Panduro has launched an IndieGoGo and some of the perks might very well pique your interest, especially the Postpartum Mixtape, which features tracks from Job For A Cowboy, Cephalic Carnage, Rwake, Saint Vitus, and more.
Head on below for a proof-of-concept for Postpartum as well as the cover art for Postpartum Mixtape. READ MORE
