My Music Video Directing Debut – The Muiras

It all started with a message from Drew Norton, former front man of The Nilon Bombers, the chart topping indie band from the 1990s.

Drew happens to be my brother in law, but I assure you, it’s not family loyalty that makes me like his music. I could easily listen politely and never bother again, but the truth is, I’m a real fan. I listen to his stuff all the time.

But the most exciting thing is, after nearly 20 years, he’s writing music again and sharing it with me. Which is why I received the message:

“Anybody fancy making a video for one of the new tracks?” he asked back in December.

I did. I’m quite fond of  making animated films, so took the opportunity to offer my services by making one for ‘Ruby Sun’, which, to be honest, is mostly instrumental. What’s more, it’s extremely catchy. Whilst I made this video, taking 6 months as I learned the intricacies of the Muvizu software, I often found myself humming it for days, even though I’ve heard it over 300 times, I imagine.



You’re humming it now, aren’t you? Want more? Then visit his soundcloud account to hear more brilliant songs.
