Richard Hunter, working on minimal budget, has put together this atmospheric, almost Bjork-like promo for London based band Ghosts You Echo.  It's a dark and mysterious affair and yet colourful and vivid at the same time.  Extra kudos must surely go to costume designer David Curtis-Ring for lead singer Vicky's excellent tribal trappings and shaman attire, and to VFX designer Dominic Burgess for his interesting work with some great lighting effects.

Richard says "It was a tiny tiny budget, (£500) - Vicky (lead singer) approached me as she liked my work and wanted a promo - myself and my friend Dominic worked on an idea together and this is what we landed on. Everyone worked insanely hard and well together - a special special thanks to Dom who without this video literally couldn't have happened. He worked full days at a post house to then go on and work single handily late into the night, crafting the effects from start to finish!"

"No Warlocks were harmed in the making of this video," he adds.
