The Twang go to beautiful Montenegro with D.A.R.Y.L., and have a splendid time.

This warm-hearted doc-style vid has a real sense of a spectacular country and it's people. And it looks great - almost home-movie like. Can't have been actually shot on film, can it

And congrats to D.A.R.Y.L. too on winning a Silver Cannes Lion Award last week for their RNLI youth campaign film Mystery Packages. Spendid.

D.A.R.Y.L. on making the video for The Twang's Barney Rubble

"We wanted to shoot an idea for the band that was going to be a step away from the last album's promos. The idea was based around shooting a doc style film with the band, incorporating all the characters that we encountered along the journey. We wanted the portraits of the locals to feature as heavily as the band.

"We chose Montenegro for the location - an incredibly beautiful country with still quite a young film industry. We flew out and had a day's recce to firm up the locations and then went straight into it.

"The shoot was an interesting one. Loads of fun, but hard work. The local production staff were really good, but had a slightly odd sense of what was achievable. The language barrier created a few problems. When we asked for a hat for one of the extras it was apparently impossible to sort out, but when we joked about getting a yacht, it appeared within minutes! Strange.

"The video worked out cool though. We love the Twang."
