Midnight Youth 'World Comes Calling' by Michael Humphrey
New Zealand band Midnight Youth get a slick, old school globetrotting video - shot on 16mm and 1D, from Michael Humphrey, a fellow Kiwi now based in London, for World Comes Calling.

"I didn't want the clip to feel overly narrative or worse, like some sort of travel video, so I cut a mood reel for the band of textural, surreal landscapes and transitions - a lot shot on a Bolex or using techniques only really achievable with a film camera. They loved it and didn't even read the carefully worded treatment...
