Foo Fighters videomaker sets up in St. Helens

by: Darryl Swan Daniel Fickle (right), partner and director for Two Penguins Productions of Portland, sets up shop in St. Helens to shoot a video for the Foo Figher’s single, “I Should Have Known.”

Megarockers the Foo Fighters weren't physically on the set Tuesday for the video shoot supporting a release off the band's newest full-length album, 'Wasting Light.'

But in April the high-powered trio will catch a glimpse of Olde Towne St. Helens in its video, all courtesy of Portland artist and director Daniel Fickle.

Outfitted with a limousine, a politician's podium, a videomaking crew and requisite equipment, Fickle and his production company, Two Penguins Productions, filmed in front of the Columbia County Courthouse after having won a contest called 'This Video Sucks,' put on by the Foo Fighters and the cable music network, Fuse.

'We're doing a video for one of the songs on the new album,' Fickle said.

Fickle was filming for the single track, 'I Should Have Known,' and said he chose St. Helens for its open-door policy.

'Basically, they gave us easy access to City Hall,' Fickle said. Fickle is set to travel to New York in mid-April for the video premiere.
