Jean-Philippe Blunt and Thom Humphreys are long-time friends of the up-and-coming Flashguns and now, fresh out of film school - and with the imminent release of the band's debut album - they have created a splendid video for Passions Of A Different Kind: a bracingly visceral jaunt around wintry Exmoor, with a couple of appropriately large hounds.

Flashguns recorded their eponymous debut album in a dilapidated barn in the bleak winter of rural Somerset. "The landscape played a large part in the recording of the album so we wanted to mirror this with the video - it's very much a character in itself," says Jean-Philippe. "Filming took place over three days in the barren depths of Exmoor National Park. Huddled in a Landrover and armed with both a Canon 5D and a Canon 550D, Exmoor was our oyster. Two cameras allowed for simultaneous shooting, one capturing 25p while the other 50p.

"There is meaning lurking somewhere, and in keeping with a long cinematic tradition of meat as metaphor, perhaps it is for the audience to decide."
