    • Steel Season TV - Corp Invasion

      On October 8th 2011, I was asked once again by the band Steel Season to follow them around as they were about to play in one of Sheffield's most iconic rock venues, Corporation. See them arrive, go through soundcheck and all the backstage nerves before hitting the stage in this 15 minute rock documentary with interviews with the band as well as exclusive behind the scenes footage. Shot, Mixed, Edited and Directed by myself, Johann Chipol
