Sam Hill - 7th Aug 2012

Sometimes, even in the summer you need to get a glimpse of some Scrooge-like misanthrope changing his ways in an endearing way. Fortunately, here's Chris Bates' lighthearted promo for Klumzy Tung, in which a cantankerous elderly man begins to realise that maybe not all young people are out to get him.

The video was shot over three days in Hackney, Ealing and Brentford in London and features some impressive break-dancing and skateboarding, alongside it's well presented narrative and interesting ending.

The video was nominated for the Soho Shorts Festival 2012, alongside a plethora of better-known artists, including Kaiser Chiefs, Plan B, Benga, Ed Sheeran and SBTRKT (and a few other less-well known ones too).
