Travis Boak, Brad Ebert, Robbie Gray, Chad Wingard, Jay Schulz, Aaron Young, Kane Mitchell, Matt Lobbe, Justin Westhoff and Tom Jonas feature in the Power’s entry to the Film Festival, with the group performing the Chemical Brothers’ chart-topping 1997 hit ‘Block Rockin’ Beats’.
Every note and sound in the video was played or voiced by the 10 players and then cut together by the club’s digital team into the final 3:20 video.
The AFL’s 18 clubs were invited to submit an entry into the Virgin Australia Film Festival relating to the theme ‘Everything’s Possible’, and Port Adelaide was keen to showcase the artistic talents of its players in a light-hearted music video.
“We wanted to put together a fun video that took the boys away from footy for a few hours,” explains Port Adelaide captain Travis Boak, the lead vocalist in the film.
“Most of the guys were pretty nervous thinking we’d have to put ourselves out there playing musical instruments or singing.
“But it turned out to be something really fun and different from the day-to-day of footy – the guys really enjoyed the opportunity.
“I think it comes out in the film clip.”
The Virgin Australia Film Festival winner is determined by the number of views, comments, likes and shares of the video on Facebook and YouTube.
