UNORTHODOX - Wretch 32 feat. Example Directed by Ben Newman

So this was a pretty full on video shot on 2 days, my day was spent on Broadwater farm estate in Tottenham in various stairwells where Wretch 32 grew up and still lives. I was a bit thrown when the taxi driver refused to drive me on to the estate because he claimed it was too dangerous... well after a 10 minute debate he did.

So my characters were the goth ballet dancer and Jasmine that you would have previously seen on my blog in the Wiley video as a manga street dancer. Also Wretch 32 and Example in and around the estate and pirate radio station. Plus the amazing kid dancer.... the rest of the make up was down to Bianca Simone.
All in all another great video from Ben Newman well deserved winner of best new director at the VMA's

Wolfgang - Dancing with the Devil

Id waited a while to work with James Copeman and here it is 'Dancing with the Devil' Wolfgang.

James pushed me into the creative darkness then apparently I went too far into the darkside, so we'll use that for something else.. Product wise I used a lot of Illamasqua that had been sent to me by Purple - I am now a big fan.

If youre not familiar with Wolfgang you should be.  Massive tunes, they are great live I believe their off to South by South but you should definately catch a live show when theyre back in town.

This was also the day I met the lovely Amiee Croysdill she is a mega babe stylist...

Hair and make up; Me

Ellie Goulding lights

Here she is the gorgeous Goulding, this video has been on line for a bit but I didn't want to blog it until Lights was actually released.

Poor Ellie had a serious case of the flu on the shoot day but she managed to pull it out of the bag.. the raunch bag..

This was also the day that we welcomed Josh Goodwin into the fold and its all been 'Beyond' ever since.

Me and Josh got to throw some flashing balls at Lauren whilst she donned a rather fetching gimpish black all in one.

Make up - Me Lucy Wearing / Lovebird/ Lover depending how you know me
Hair -  Josh Goodwin
Styling - Lauren Grant

Directed by the legend that is Sophie Muller
