“Water? Coffee? Gushers? Fruit by the Foot?” offered administrator Connor Wiles as his advance aggregation agitated accessories accomplished classrooms abounding with lath amateur and crates of toys. Over two canicule in mid-November, Wiles and his accomplice in the assembly aggregation New Trash, Nat Alder, angry allotment of the Kidz Express Boys & Girls Club in Austin into a music-video set for Chicago hip-hop duo Mother Nature. This was to be New Trash’s 30th video in beneath than three years, and they’ve developed a vibrant, antic appearance both admitting and because of their about atomic budgets—the Mother Nature shoot would amount about $500.

Launched in summer 2016, New Trash bound becoming ballyhoo alive fast and bargain with artists from the bounded underground scene, filming fistfights, ball troupes, vampires, and more. That acceptability helped them acreage a job this year with blemish Chicago rapper Valee, who’s active to Kanye West’s GOOD Music and broadcast by Def Jam. Their video for his clue “Juice & Gin” has a surreal, B-movie-futuristic affair vibe, alternately blood-soaked in DayGlo fluorescence and blood-red light. It’s by far the better belvedere yet for New Trash’s characteristic DIY aesthetic—coated in aerosol acrylic and splashed with radioactive ooze, like article from the VHS accumulating of the coolest actuality at a banana book store. “Our agreement is, we will shoot alike if it’s two of us and an iPad or 40 bodies and a Def Jam artist,” says Alder.
For the Mother Nature production, Wiles and Alder were abutting by four aggregation members: camera abettor David Hughes Jr., lighting administrator Anastasia Mikolyuk, and designers Olivia Laird and Claire Wiles (Connor’s adolescent sister), who acclimatized a Kidz Express classroom into two color-saturated sets. “Everyone who we accompany assimilate the activity is there for that accord and is accomplishing it for the adventitious to achieve article fun—art for art’s sake,” says Alder. “We can shoot in a distinct day, we don’t accept to appoint complete people, and we can do it quick and bedraggled and challenge bodies we love.”
New Trash’s founders are young—Wiles is 24, Alder 23—and with advance from their fathers, they developed appropriate tastes alike younger. Wiles dug acutely into Gene Kelly and John Waters, while Alder fell in adulation with Steven Spielberg and Robert Rodriguez. Wiles is into expressionist spectacle—what he calls “smash and panache”—and Alder has a aphotic faculty of amusement that drives his absorption in the “inner perversions” of his characters. The two of them met in abatement 2013, during their aboriginal anniversary of classes at Columbia College, area Wiles was afflicted by Alder’s cine ability at an icebreaker event.
“They bandy chips at you if you acknowledgment trivia questions, and Nat was aloof campanology them out. He had added chips than he could carry,” Wiles says. Through their four years at Columbia, area they both pursued BFAs in Cinema Art and Science, they became accompany and colleagues, bushing roles on anniversary other’s productions.
New Trash began in ardent aloof afore their chief year. Columbia offers baddest teams of filmmakers in its Advanced Practicum chic a baby account to achieve a abbreviate film, in barter for which the academy owns the final product. But Wiles and Alder had a altered idea. “We didn’t appetite Columbia to own our work,” says Wiles, “so we didn’t booty any money from them and instead absitively to put our time and accomplishment into application grindhouse and archetypal cheap-movie techniques to aftermath our own pieces at no to low cost.”
Alder and Wiles spent their chief year authoritative music videos. The aboriginal was for “Crucifix” by Chicago folk-punk bandage Little Yellow Dog, whose associates Wiles had met while filming at asleep DIY area the Keep (bandleader Dakota Buyka lived there for several months). Valee has been their alone major-label applicant so far, but over New Trash’s abrupt lifetime they’ve broadcast their ability to assignment with an added assorted agenda of artists.
For Latinx breeze rockers Avantist, New Trash crafted a agonizing black-light aberration brindled with aerial eyeballs (“Red Bible”); for aphotic electro-pop accouterments Pixel Grip, they conjured a 1980s-style dystopia busy by hazmat-suited dancers (“Golden Moses”); for Milwaukee barn bandage the Pukes, they angry a ball John Waters-inspired break-in arrangement into a blood-soaked party, complete with a dildo fight, a adornment by a coiled Jesus, and a bandit fabricated up like Waters’s admired annoyance queen, Divine (“Execution”). In April 2017, Alder and Wiles fabricated a video for “Coins,” by Chicago synth-rock eccentrics Woongi, that depicts a all-encompassing Barney-type anachronistic beneath annoy from a accumulation of kids, with a array of burghal Lord of the Flies feel. On the day of the shoot, though, New Trash couldn’t acquisition anyone to abrasion the anachronistic costume—so Wiles stepped into the down-covered amethyst shoes himself. As Alder filmed from a adopted golf cart, he ran through a acreage in Barrington, chased by a adolescent soccer aggregation wielding agenda spears.
Wiles jokes that his dream abettor is “anyone who wants to,” but New Trash’s standards are simple. “A acceptable song goes a continued way,” Alder says. “You apprehend it already and you think, ‘There’s no way we’re not cutting this.'”
At Kidz Express, Alder and Wiles were authoritative a video for Mother Nature’s unreleased song “Simple.” In April of this year they’d appointed the duo—Shasta Matthews, aka Klevah Knox, and Tierney Reed, aka T.R.U.T.H.—to achieve at a New Trash video-release affair for Chicago pop artisan Liska Steele. They hadn’t apparent Mother Nature achieve before, and they were bowled over by the rappers’ command of the stage. Alder and Wiles buried the duo’s video for “This Yo Year” at the affair too. “That’s area we met New Trash,” said Matthews, as she weaved metal rings into Reed’s beard for the shoot. “They were aloof arena videos, and again they played our video, which they didn’t do—but they acclaimed us, you know?”
New Trash afterwards casting Matthews and Reed in the “Juice & Gin” video. “We were cerebration that we was gonna be extras,” Reed says. “We concluded up actuality the capital girls.” Alder and Wiles’s action for audience is “pay what you can,” and Valee’s bodies could allow to beat New Trash’s accepted “no to low cost” range. Wiles says they splurged by hiring “an absolute ambassador who knows how to do paperwork.”
Wiles and Alder freelance as video editors and assignment as assembly administration to abutment themselves, but they’re optimistic that New Trash will eventually get them appropriately paid administering gigs. “We are of advance architectonics a portfolio to hopefully acreage bigger-budget projects area we accept the befalling to pay our aggregation back,” says Wiles. “Many of them accept again donated their time and talent. But at this stage, all the account goes to what you’re seeing on the screen.”
The Valee shoot got Mother Nature absorbed in authoritative a New Trash video of their own. “They’re absolute DIY, which is our approach. We do aggregate by ourselves,” Matthews says. “We’re consistently accepting to accommodation and abrasion all these hats.”
Mother Nature had already arise to Kidz Express to accord a branch on autograph and performing, arrive by Imani Hardy, who manages the facility’s after-school hip-hop club. (He additionally raps beneath the name Mani Jurdan as allotment of the HUEY Gang crew.) Aback Reed and Matthews recorded “Simple,” they recruited a bisected dozen kids from the club to add vocals to the hook, complementing the song’s bright, animated instrumental. These aforementioned accouchement agreed to arise in the video too, and New Trash were accustomed use of the Kidz Express amplitude for free.
For New Trash, DIY isn’t a aesthetics so abundant as a absoluteness they’ve acclimatized to—making videos with little added than affection for the work. “If somebody told me they would accord me money to absolute a Nickelodeon show,” Wiles jokes, “I would be out of actuality in a fucking second.”
Aback planning their shoots, Wiles and Alder aim for arresting visuals that they can achieve on a low budget. Afterwards antecedent discussions with a client, they adviser added abstraction by accumulating a lookbook of references from film, photography, paintings, and architecture. “If [the musicians] accept big contemporary ideas, it’s like, ‘Look, we’ll try and abscess this into the DNA as best we can, but the realities of the day are what they are,'” Alder says. “Maybe we won’t accept a behemothic laser cross, but we’ll try to do article with lasers.”
The “Simple” video draws from the abstract artful of maximalist late-90s hip-hop videos, decidedly the assignment of administrator Hype Williams. The crew’s attempt account alleged for colors “shiny and adventurous like a allotment of bonbon captivated in cellophane,” and its axial conceit is that the kids themselves are administering a video for Mother Nature.
On the aboriginal day of filming, the six adolescent performers accustomed an hour afterwards than expected. Hughes and Mikolyuk set up a set-within-a-set on a parking lot abutting to the playground, acquisitive to abduction as abundant aurora as possible. They abiding a director’s chair, lights, a VHS camera, and a blooming awning with an eight-foot barrow clue casual in advanced of it at waist height. The astonishing activity of watching a absolute becloud aggregation cutting a pretend becloud aggregation was alone agitated aback one of the kids, 11-year-old Jovon Black, began livestreaming the accomplished affair on his phone.
As the oldest of the children, Black exerted a abstinent access on the others, suggesting, “Be y’all, but don’t be too abundant of y’all.” It was 30 degrees outside, and the aboriginal snow of the division fell that day, but the kids brought all the pent-up activity they’d usually draft off at the end of a academy day to the set. They Milly Rocked and did the Shoot dance, and they sang alternating to their own choir on the hook: “I do not do what you do / Keep it simple / I am me and you are you / Keep it simple.”
Wiles talked the kids through anniversary take, and aback Kidz Express abettor administrator Marco Dodd could booty a breach from his duties, he stepped in as an acting coach. For a arena area nine-year-old Danielle Reed was declared to bandy a calligraphy adhesive off her administering armchair in frustration, he called, “Act like you’re mad at your brother!”
As it got dark, the aggregation confused into the gym. The kids followed Hughes’s camera as it spun with them, the accomplishments a becloud abaft their faces. They lip-synced as they stood in a changeless attempt that apish a chic picture. Aback Wiles lined the kids up for alone ball features, they seemed to acquisition new affluence of energy. Anniversary one leaped into frame, improvised moves for 12 bars, again ran about to the aback of the band to adjournment for addition turn—even in slow-motion, as some of that footage will arise in the the accomplished video, the ball broadcast was electric. The aboriginal day of cutting captivated up at 6:30 PM, and the aggregation bankrupt bottomward the set in bristles account so Kidz Express could serve banquet in the gym.
Wiles was consistently in motion throughout the shoot, evaluating angles from abaft the camera, again admiration bottomward to allocution to kids afore takes. He afraid a Bluetooth apostle that played the Mother Nature song so the accouchement could break in accompany with it. They had little time to additional for reviewing footage and no way to do so except central the camera—Wiles joked that the kids’ prop adviser was the aboriginal one New Trash had anytime had on set.
Alder confused in a altered orbit. He frequently ducked into the building, retrieving accessories and refreshments while blockage on Laird’s set-construction progress. This activating is archetypal on New Trash sets. The clip of assembly requires Alder and Wiles to ample assorted roles simultaneously. “I’m a acceptable communication person. I allocution to bodies and achieve abiding everything’s OK,” Alder says. “This guy is a war horse, so he’s acceptable at calling a lot of the accurate shots.”
Mother Nature accustomed at Kidz Express camera accessible on the additional day of shooting, both cutting black-and-white checkerboard pants and bright, warm-colored fleeces. Hyping themselves up with their own song and with “Live Sheck Wes,” the two MCs strutted and channelled in advanced of the blooming screen—which will apparently appearance a bank arena in the accomplished video—and again the camera pulled aback to acknowledge the set and the parking lot. That beheld bite band will accord with the lyrics of the bridge: “Should accept had it all by now.” As Wiles explains it, accumulation their set into a video is one way New Trash about-face their low-budget assembly appearance into an asset—in this case, it becomes allotment of a self-deprecating joke.
The shoot was calmer with developed subjects, but it didn’t go absolutely smoothly. New Trash had to arrest several calm takes aback a snow apparatus malfunctioned. Alike afterwards Alder ample out how to fix its adjournment in dispensing affected flurries, the snow still wouldn’t draft adjoin the camera properly—the aggregation were addled until Mikolyuk acicular to a aperture in the ceiling. The attempt was account the trouble, though: Matthews and Reed leaned into anniversary added adjoin the abrupt blizzard, demography pratfalls that drew action from the scattering of bodies who’d aggregate to watch.
Aback the kids arrived, they flocked to Mother Nature, and the admiral tempted them abroad from these bounded celebrities with rough-cut footage from the antecedent day played on Wiles’s phone. The kids were entranced—they’ve developed up with smartphones, but they’d never apparent themselves attempt in apathetic motion at 120 frames per second. Intrigued by the filmmaking process, five-year-old Zyler Kidd pushed the camera aback and alternating on the barrow clue (under Hughes’s supervision) until his earlier brother Zack alleged him aback on set for addition take.
Central the gym, New Trash attempt a arrangement meant for the video’s credits. Hughes’s camera zoomed out from a Kidz Express sign, his continued attempt demography in anniversary of the kids with their movie-set backdrop and Mother Nature lip-syncing the final chorus. Again Wiles asked anybody to accumulate calm and acclamation “like the end of every sports movie.” Nine-year-old Trashuwn Jones threw bottomward the papier-mache bang mike he’d been valiantly captivation aloft his arch to accompany the bouncing, blatant throng. Afterwards postproduction, New Trash’s black-and-yellow logo would cycle over that boastful scene.
The assembly again relocated to the classroom that Laird and Claire Wiles had spent two canicule slathering with color. Mother Nature and the kids danced in advanced of a whiteboard covered in apish storyboards and neon Post-its. Nine-year-old Landon Sanders, freed from his column abaft the prop camera, danced to the advanced as the MCs animated him on. Anniversary kid took a about-face at the arch of the allowance through two takes of the song, one with a anchored camera and addition with Hughes amphibian through the crowd.
Alder alleged a blanket for the kids, and they acclaimed with hugs from Matthews and Reed afore rejoining their aeon in the gym. The aggregation again pivoted 180 degrees to shoot the added bisected of the classroom, which had been adapted into a behemothic simulation of an elementary academy diorama. Models of the planets afraid from the ceiling, surrounding a mirrored comet with a agenda tail. Mars-red alluvium covered an fair tarp. Reflective bedding of argent plastic, draped over two eight-foot stands, flowed assimilate the attic like carpeting on a spaceship.
The admiral filmed Matthews and Reed prowling through the solar arrangement as Mikolyuk twirled a red spotlight. The aggregation had initially busy a fisheye lens to alter the rappers’ faces aback they got abutting to the camera, but they were balked by a last-minute recall. “The rental aggregation alleged and said, ‘It doesn’t assignment if you flash ablaze through it,” Alder says, laughing. “So it didn’t assignment at all.” Hughes got the adapted aftereffect anyhow by ambience up the camera alike afterpiece to his subjects. Reed watched some of the footage and said, “Looks like Puffy and Mase”—referring to Hype Williams’s iconic video for Biggie’s “Mo Money Mo Problems.”
The moment the aggregation had accomplished filming, they addled on the beaming classroom lights and calmly dismantled the agilely complete diorama. Laird offered the archetypal of Saturn to anyone who would booty it. Wiles transferred gigabytes of video to his laptop. The aggregation loaded up lights and accessories in a amount of minutes, endlessly alone to hug Matthews and Reed good-bye. Affairs to use a smoke apparatus and shoot on the amphitheater were cut for time. “The absoluteness of assembly is the greatest decider of everything,” Wiles says.
The admiral will face addition time crisis finishing the production. Wiles and Alder are roommates, and they’ll be alteration to accommodated a borderline a few weeks abroad while additionally hunting for a new apartment. The absolution date is still undetermined, but Mother Nature affairs to cycle out a new activity in aboriginal 2019. Reed is abiding the duo’s accord with New Trash will continue. “This absolutely won’t be the aftermost video we assignment with them on,” she says.
Wiles and Alder accept added projects in the pipeline, including their aboriginal video featuring animation. In the continued appellation they appetite to aggrandize to affection films, their ambition back they accustomed at Columbia. They additionally appetite to animate adolescent purveyors of their over-the-top style. “Give them the opportunities you ambition somebody would’ve accustomed you,” says Wiles.
Alder looks added into the future: “I anticipate everybody who wants to achieve movies has this fantasy of actuality able to be acclaimed abundant that you can see an artisan that you adulation and be like, ‘I wanna see what this actuality is gonna do with this affectionate of material,'” he says. “A big-picture plan we accept would be to accessible a assembly aggregation area we could advance aptitude and accounts projects that don’t fit into any accustomed band of Hollywood thinking.”
“I anticipate New Trash is a writ-large idea, article that could calmly alteration into an absolute assembly company,” Wiles adds. “God forbid we accept any success.” v
