Threshold Posts Behind The Scenes Footage

A few months ago, British progressive metallers Threshold kicked off a fan video contest for the song "Staring At The Sun," taken from new album "March Of Progress." In the end, the effort by Achim Bieler from Germany saw him winning the competition. Check out the original clip right here.

Since winning the competition, Threshold and Achim conceived a plan to shoot additional footage in order to edit a new, even more impressive version of the video. For this, Threshold’s vocalist Damian Wilson met Achim and his crew in South Germany to record the new footage. The outcome – the new, official video clip for "Staring At The Sun" – can be found after the jump.

But it doesn’t stop here! Achim also edited a “making of Staring At The Sun” video that lets us take a look behind the scenes of the set and grants us detailed insight on the post production works. Check it out below. More...
