A young band of the new parisian indy rock scene, the Olympics are about to realease their first single called "Tunnels". To accompany this event, the idea of a music video came to life. The goal of this fund raising is to enable the band to finance this project.
THE BAND / OLYMPICS
The Olympics were created by the meeting of Nicolas ( Ex-member of the Furs – Printemps de Bourges, Vieilles Charrues) and David in the summer 2012. Ambitious and motivated, it's thanks to their first arrangements that they managed to attract other artists to complete the band. The project first attracted Quentin, on the guitar, although already a member of La//Kvlkd ( label Kitsuné, compilation Kitsuné, séléction les inrockuptibles), then Quentin on keyboards and finaly Damien on the bass.
At the end of December the band was formed, and everything started to move quickly.
They started out by making the front page of the musical website " Desimposture.com", and then they were apart of the selection Agoafrog of french artists to discover in 2013. The first tracks circulated word to mouth, and they became taken cared by Jocelyn DuBouetiez manager of new upcoming french bands like VedeTT, Olympia Fields, Future Dust or DAD.
Determined to continue after these fortunate events, the young Olympics started a parisian tour since February, after only a month of existence. They are already playing in prestigious concert halls like l'OpA, La Dame de Canton or Le Bus Palladium. In march 2013, their track "Tunnels" is on the compilation on the music website indiemusic.fr, We are indie XIV.

A LITTLE WORD ABOUT THE SCRIPT
The scene takes place in a quarry during an underground party. The light is weak, with only small sources around. We discover a group of about sixty people, with different exentrique looks. The party is going wild when suddently a young man meets the eye of a delicate young women. A sensoual tracking then takes place throughout different stages of the party.
Little by little we discover the participants. The young women draws the camera on her heels. Sometimes she looses it, witnessing different scenes. Some of them are absurd, draging us down in a world on the verge of reality.
In an off centered gallery, the band is playing the song. The characters don't interact with them, like they are invisible. The passing of the young women near their scene is, consequently the only element connecting both environments.
