Jimmy Brown - 1st Sept 2010

Jimi Crayon's second video for Graffiti 6 is for the summery pop of Stare Into The Sun (currently being used to advertise The Sun) and focuses on the strong nature of the lyric.

The video uses costumes, surroundings and action to narrate the words, and Jimi says: "We had so much to do on the day and everyone was fantastic, but the cast needed to really concentrate to make sure they hit their marks and that everything happened at the right time.

"We literally had time for one or two run-throughs for each sequence before we had to shoot, its amazing how quickly people pick things up, especially once they're a bit tipsy."

The promo had a UK exclusive on Myspace and a US exclusive on AOL - but it's already proving a hit on YouTube, with hundreds of favourable comments.
