September 2016

For years, brothers Oli & Louis Leimbach and I have discussed making something together sometime… finally, we have made something together.

Their new summer vibes single ‘Waking Up Easy’ has been launched and I was fortunate enough to direct the clip.

With a modest budget and a tight 2-day shooting schedule, we asked a lot of favours of our friends and managed to create several worlds based around locations we knew on Sydney’s northern beaches.

A special thanks has to go our brave leading lady Emily who was thrown (literally) into a freezing swimming pool a dozen times for the underwater sequence and again in the lake and managed to never complain once!

And a huge thanks to our crew who gave up two long days to help make this clip come to life.

I hope this song really launches the band into the stratosphere because they deserve it!
