David Knight - 20th July 2010

Here's a well-choreographed, skilfully-composed one-take video for singer-songwriter Liam Frost's breezy Good Things Are Coming Our Way by new directing team Duck Duck Moose & Sons - that's Manchester-based pair Joe Simpson and Stuart Gillies.

Shot inside the Garrick Theatre in Stockport, it is, as Joe explains, a genuine one-shot, not one of those sneakily faked ones. "We rehearsed and shot the video all in one day, with the added pressure that we had to vacate the theatre by 6pm," he says. "As expected we overran, with the venue giving us a couple of extra hours. There was a lot of false starts and technical resets, but there was only a very small number of full takes - maybe about five.

"The finished version was the very last take of the day, and the only time we got it right. It was shot with a steadicam, fantastically operated by Stammos Triantafyllos." Indeed. It's very smoothly done.
