Kate Sissons plays a troubled, incarcerated woman, who finds a kind of freedom from the asylum where she's confined in Stuart Birchall's ambitious psychological video for Deaf Havana's Leeches. "I really enjoyed this project - the video was another opportunity to develop a darker narrative concept," says Stuart, who has worked with Kate before, on his videos for The Qemists (feat Enter Shikari) and The Architects, and his short film <em>Burning</em>. "The only real setback was that the track was fairly short, so I had to rein in my ideas considerably to make it fit - which offered some nice challenges in the edit for my editor, Alex Dunn. It was great to have the opportunity to work with actress Kate Sissons once again in the lead role."
