A couple of weeks ago I filmed my first ever professional music video. It’s for my first single, 35 Missed Calls which should be released in a few weeks.
And, later on today I’m getting a sneak peak at the finished video. I am really excited.
The filming was a lovely experience although it was VERY cold and sometimes wet, and sometimes extremely muddy. Jessica, the film’s producer had developed a really nice story for the video and it involved me skipping around our local countryside in Wellington boots and a beautiful Victorian style nightgown. But it was so cold that I had to wear a woolly hat and a poncho, diving into my Dad’s big winter coat between takes.
Other shots had me in a different outfit, singing to the camera with my ukulele. Costume changes in a van wasn’t the most pleasant of experiences but I was told ‘you have to suffer for your art’ ha ha.
I can’t wait to see the finished results after Jessica and her partner, Shaun have edited all the bits together. And I can’t wait for you to see it too.

I’ve got to give a huge thank you to my Mum and Dad for keeping me warm during the filming and carrying all the stuff. They’ve got jobs as roadies when I do my first tour!
And big thanks to Distilled Records and Jessica and Shaun for letting me realise my dreams.
