Now, read about the wonderful succes story of this Gordon Haskell 'How Wonderful Your Are' single and Video.....
I directed, filmed, edited this video for a small UK independent UK record company, Flying Spark Records. The story of this song and to a less extent, to this music video is classic success story.
The single 'How Wonderful You Are' by Gordon Haskell - a 50 somethin' unknown singersongwriter - went to No.2 on UK single Christmas Chart in December 2001 - to the surprise of many people in the big music business - no.1 was ...Robbie Williams.... - Following this success, Gordon Haakell went on to sign for Warner Records and sell over 100,000 albums in the UK one.
Before Gordon signed to Big Warner Records, Flying Sparke Records needed a music video to promote to TV the increasing success of the single 'How Wonderful You Are'.
I realised this video in 5 days from stratch to finished: the concept, finding location, filming in 2 hours on location and stole the other footages through the streets of London, editing on Premiere, then on Avid for the on-line -
I had a total artistic freedom (to say that the Records company had no suggestion when it came to discuss the content and concept for the video...) - the budget was inexistant - and the only thing i used, in addition to my brain, was 1 Sony PD 150.
Nerves-breaking....but I LOVED IT.
The video was shwon on various UK TV show, including TOTP2 and MTV.
