An engaging promo for Norwich band Bearsuit's Princess You're A Test by James Sharpe - which required him shooting the band over the course of one night in a Norfolk forest, from dusk to dawn...

"The idea was to have a story about the band being tormented by a forest dwelling princess/spirit - drawing on some of the imagery in the songs on their Phantom Forest album - who puts the band through a series of bizarre tests and to do a really layered, kinetic and surreal edit to create a sense of the kind of unhinged panic you get in a nightmare.

"The princess is played by Ellie Jones from Norwich band Fever Fever. We shot from 7pm to 7am in a forest in Norwich with one camera and one light, in the pitch dark. We all went slightly mad."
