As a member of Found, Mike Sharpe created Ellie Goulding's sun-drenched video for Burn, one of the biggest British promos of the past few years. Now Mike has his moment in the sun once again, in this dazzling promo for Take That's Let In The Sun, bathing the band in a brilliant light, literally.


"We were honoured to work with one of Britain’s most iconic bands to create the video for Let In The Sun. Focusing on the core theme of the track, and the immense power of the sun, we created a striking band performance that sees the guys in a 360º room illuminated by a thin strip of light.

"Throughout the course of the video the walls of the room slowly raise up to let in more and more light until they are bathed in brilliant beaming sunlight.

"Shot against a section of strip light, the set was extended by our talented VFX team to create the light effect all around the guys. All the elements of the sun were shot on a second day using various different practical elements and some lovely macro lenses."
