Creepy or cool? Personally, I bloody love it! These were taken in January, the bare winter trees add that extra layer of creepiness.

Really pleased to bring back the popular Acoustic Session series. To kick it off in style we had none other than Bad Bob Bates in for a few songs. This was recorded on 29th July at the Blank Slate Studio in Heaton. Edited and released on the very same day! We like a challenge at BSC!

Creature – ‘Bored’ promo video

Lots of firsts with this one. My first video as director and editor. Matthews first video with Blank Slate (top notch job too!) Creature’s first release and first video! First time on Punktastic and the first storage trailer I’ve shot in!

Shot at U Hold the Key storage in Heaton (thank you to the lovely folk there for making it happen!) on a really hot sunny afternoon. 4 hours of takes and fun. We wanted something fast, snappy and edgy, with a trippy black and white vibe.
