Really chuffed to have Simon back in session. This time with a very special guest!

For the first track from the session they jam on a few classic gems; Organ Donor, Tainted Love, Sweet Dreams and of course the now classic Insomnia!

Creature – ‘Bored’ promo video

Lots of firsts with this one. My first video as director and editor. Matthews first video with Blank Slate (top notch job too!) Creature’s first release and first video! First time on Punktastic and the first storage trailer I’ve shot in!

Shot at U Hold the Key storage in Heaton (thank you to the lovely folk there for making it happen!) on a really hot sunny afternoon. 4 hours of takes and fun. We wanted something fast, snappy and edgy, with a trippy black and white vibe.

Coma Violet – Dance Sinner Dance

We were lucky enough to have Coma ask us to shoot a video for their debut single. Out now in all the usual places!

It was really good fun to shoot this. We had some super tight deadlines but the band grafted and we managed to shoot the whole thing (nearly 30 takes!) in under 5 hours.
