Jimmy Brown - 7th June 2012

Tom Haines traveled to the faded urban landscapes of Cuba for his latest video - a story of hope and determination in the unforgiving world of aerial acrobatics.

The promo, for Temper Trap's new single Trembling Hands, follows an acrobat's struggle to prove herself on the ropes, building to a thrilling moment in the spotlight. Tom draws strong, passionate performances from the cast of Cuban trapeze artists, bringing authenticity and suspense to a quietly emotional narrative.
