David Knight - 6th Dec 2012

Ahead of his new video for Robbie Williams, WIZ travels to Malta to investigate the fleshly pleasures to be enjoyed down the streets of Valetta, with the guidance of local performer Ira Melkonyan, and some evocative vintage footage. WIZ was there with Dark Horses, who were invited to perform in Malta, and record in a studio on Strait Street - what used to be the harbour town's notorious red light district – known as The Gut by British sailors looking for action on-shore... WIZ mixes the guitars of the band's Anna Minor, from their debut album Black Music, with voiceover recollections from a Maltese transvestite who used to work the strip, and the sounds of the world’s oldest profession. Strait Street Director: WIZ Music: Dark Horses 'Anna Minor' Producer: Andrew Whiston Production Company: A+ Cast: Ira Melkonyan, Lisa Elle, Bobby Waterson, Stephen Ingham, Andy Bang, Harry Bohay-Nowell DoP: Ali Tollervey Editor & Sound Design: Leila Sarraf Research: Emma Mattei, Sandra Banthorpe Camera Operators: Adrian Abela, Bettina Hutsheck, Martin Bonnici TK: Tom Russell @ Prime Focus Watch: Nowness
