When I am not freelancing for Aquent in London, I am usually on tour around the world with my band “King Salami & the Cumberland Three”. For the release of our new single, “Pineapple Mama”, our record company Dirty Water Records commissioned me to do a music video to promote it. I directed it and filmed all the shots while touring over the summer in Spain, Canada, Croatia with my mobile phone & tablet, and edited it all once I was back at home, using mainly After Effects.
Why do you deserve to win?
This video was received very well, it was seen by over 40 000 people on the social media sites and shared by hundreds, made the band sell thousands of our new record, but also got us lots of invitations to play music festivals around the world (even one in Tahiti, in French Polynesia!).
This project was very successful considering it costed £0 to make (just a couple of days of editing) and it took the band to another level in the music industry.
