Lisbon and London-based Rui Vieira directed the Vimeo Staff Picked short film Something Good, and now his debut music video for Portuguese DJ/producer Xinobi's Real Fake described as an 'underwater platonic love story'.

It's certainly a sweet, nicely-cast tale of burgeoning love, as an encounter between girl swimmer and water-phobic boy develops as it moves from dilapidated swimming pool to open sea.
