A tempestuous relationship, swinging from joy to brooding anger, is played out in the exquisite surroundings of Ibiza in Stuart Birchall's video for Sandy Rivera's Bang, featuring April.

It's a great-looking piece, thanks to the gorgeous location, but also by the use of a wide range of formats, from HD to lo-fi lo-res video, and film. 


"Bang was an interesting challenge - a tiny crew, shooting a very raw reportage style whilst looking to maintain a distinct cinematic feel. Shooting on four different formats, including film, over three days in up to thirty seven degrees.

"Shooting in Ibiza is always a pleasure, such a beautiful palette and guaranteed magic at sunrise and sunset, the island has some truly breathtaking views and I like to think we managed to capture a little of this in the video."
