David Knight - 8th Oct 2013

A year ago, Stevie Russell took up the challenge, both behind and front of the camera, to tell the heroic story of an ordinary man with a different kind of face, standing up to the haters in the video for Kodaline's All I Want. This charmingly told story has been a deservedly massive hit, helped launch the Irish band - and now nominated for the 2013 UK Music Video Awards. 

Stevie not only directed the video, he donned the makeup. And now, he's back with part 2 - and in fact, most unusually (or possibly uniquely) it's a sequel to the story, set to the same track.

This time, having seen off the bullies at work, the drama surrounds his little dog Digby. And we pick up where we left off with his relationship with that nice girl from the office...  

Stevie Russell: "When they first approached me, the immediate reaction was to think 'bad idea'. Sequels have a history of failure! Although, the idea of losing Digby (he's my dog) was a story I really wanted to tell as it is a great fear of mine. 

"It all fit, so myself and Mike (Donnelly, producer) jumped into it. Putting the mask on again was pretty horrible but I love the character so it was worth it in the end. I think the first one had a message and a bigger theme. With this, we just wanted to have a romp and have some fun, so it is a little less serious this time around."
