That's a Wrap

Okay so I am not blowing my own wind here but I have been elated, ecstatic, enraptured and all other descriptive  happy words since Thursday. I was lucky enough to shoot the new Kassidy 'I Don't Know' music video. I must say I wasn't expecting too much after the casting but I was very hopeful when I got a call back on Friday asking me a few questions about what I was willing and not willing to do. So the weekend quickly passing I got the confirmation call on Tuesday very excited, Thursday finally came. 

I woke up at 5am to be on set by 7.30am not quite sure what to expect these 4 well dressed and very stylish guys strolled in full of smiles and hand shakes and hellos. I must say, having met a few 'famous' people, in my lifetime I did expect a totally different attitude but these four guys quickly threw my expectations out the window. The 4 Scotsmen were sweet, lovely and very chatty all with their own personalities quickly coming through. Hamish was the first to strike a conversation up with me and we got talking about music but quickly cut off due to a new scene shot. Bummer! Barrie oozed Jim Morrison's utter fucking coolness and mystique calling me 'sweatheart' in his very husky, sexy, Scots accent. Lewis was tall and very lovely and funny making me laugh within the first few minutes of our encounter. Chris was cool and collected and you can see the special bond these 4 guys have which comes through in their music too. Their accent is lovely and I heard loads of "Aiye" which I thought was cute and taking a liking to the accent which melted me into nothing. They are like family and it really makes their music something unique. They are just 4 awesome, down-to-earth guys who share an intense love for music and creating beautiful harmonies and sounds. All four playing guitar these guys are going to go very far and are extremely talented. The idea for the video was amazing and a lot of fun to shoot, being able to go two ways, but I really do believe they had the right crew and management behind them every step of the way making it a very successful day. 

A creepy setting, an old unused wheelchair and some dark, sinister paintings later my day came to a wrap at 8pm. Sadly. But I feel very honoured to have met these great guys and will most certainly go watch them at The Barfly in Camden on 7th February. If you are around you should definitely pop down. You won't be disappointed. I can not express how talented these four are. And hopefully I will be getting some sick photo's and a few beers and plenty of laughs with them. I don't want to give too much away but I will post the video when it's out. I can not wait.
