Notes for Judging: Keeping in with the aesthetic and style I had already created for the band for a previous music video, I decided to devise a concept based on British politics and themes, but pulled off in a very tongue-in-cheek, B Movie inspired style. With myself being an unsigned Director, and the band having no label, this project was a self-funded labour of love. It was shot on a low budget of merely £2500, with so many favours being pulled by our incredible crew. Shoot dates also fell directly during Storm Ciara, which proved challenging! We shot the video with a passionate crew who all worked for free, on various locations in the band's hometown over 2 days.
