First we would like to say a massive thankyou to all 28 extras who featured in the video shoot yesterday, you really made all of this possible and thanks so much for being so willing with the pretty crazy moves and direction we put you through!

Everything went off nicely and all the prep and direction paid off, big thank you to the crew at Life is Art Films for working with us on this project and making our strange vision a full blown reality.
