London folksters Mt.Wolf, currently creating a stir on the UK blogosphere, enlist Jean Philippe Blunt and Thom Humphreys to direct the promo to their ethereal ballad Life Size Ghost.

The duo, who get at one with nature shooting the band out in the open air by lakes and forests, explain: "We openly rejected any clear narratives, and were more interested in the feeling, colour and place for this video" explain Jean Philippe and Thom.

"Working closely with our DP and long time collaborator, Rina Yang, a decision was made to shoot on S16mm film. The organic nature of the material filmic process matched our approach to this promo and aided in capturing the beautiful location.

"All effects were produced in-camera and filmic transitions were kept in the edit to heighten this idea of the medium."
