Jimmy Brown - 31st Jan 2014

Ed Morris, formerly an award-winning advertising creative, now director of award-winning ads, now crosses into music video territory with a promo like no other for We Are Shining's Killing, featuring Eliza Doolittle. 

Ed has essentially brought a circus act into the video age, by pairing dancer Shanelle 'Tani' Fergus with John Taylor - a knife thrower. The result is a hair-raising, heart in mouth few minutes, as Tani dodges lethal daggers along a wall. And the evidence suggests it was done for real...

“I basically showed them a film clip of some knife throwing and another of a girl dancing and said I wanted to put the two together," says Ed. "The band loved it immediately and just let me get on with it.”
