Motherless Land' is about escaping the norm and living a life off the grid. The video peers into the fascinating American teenage subculture of train hoppers. It's a defiant, romantic, crust-punk love story of two young drifters as they search for their next meal and adventure across the country while enduring the challenges of life on the road.
The entire video was shot over 10 days. 7 Days on a 1500 mile road trip across the American West and 3 days on closed sets in the Chicagoland and Indiana area.
Filmed on the RED Epic Dragon and Panasonic Gh4
