Jimmy Brown - 8th May 2014

Aoife McArdle documents the tale of two lovers who meet for a one night stand in the promo for Wilkinson's club stormer Half Light. 

Shot in and around Belfast, with some compelling and cinematic shots of the city, the director cast local talent Diarmuid Noyes and Joanna Nixon to play the loved-up couple who find that they can't get enough of each other – even stopping off for some how's-your-father on a church altar...

That's certainly a controversial moment, but this is essentially a sweet story in a gritty setting.
