Jack Lightfoot's video for Augustines' When Things Fall Apart is about a teenage phenomenon that you probably have never heard of. Suffolk native Will Morphey is 1300cc Stock Car World Champion - and he's only 17.

Not only that, Lightfoot's camera follows Will's progress preparing for the race that could make him the most decorated driver ever in his class. From the hard work and cheery bonhomie at the Suffolk homestead, it climaxes with the big race - a titanic battle of colliding cars and crunching metal. Will the Morphey-wagon prove to be indestructable yet again..?

From the director

JACK LIGHTFOOT:

"Since the first time I caught Augustines live, I've been in awe of their unparalleled passion towards their music and performances. I wanted to create something that mirrored these emotions - a raw, endearing promo that takes us inside a relatively alien sub-culture, and showcases passion and dedication within a completely different environment.

"We were introduced by a racing organisation to Will Morphey, the 17 year old Stock Car World Champion. It was obvious from the minute we met what the sport meant to him. His house was full of trophies, and his back garden was his very own scrap yard, stacked full of cars and motor parts. It was a captivating sight watching Will build the vehicles, grafting day and night before heading in to battle. Then, when the race was complete, it was back home to begin all over again, ready for the next event.

"I felt the track leant itself to such a story - the notion of dedication and staying focused on something, whatever else is going on 'You gotta move on when things fall apart'. I was delighted to have the opportunity to capture the honesty and sincerity of Augustines on film."
