French directing duo Sam & Emma - that's Paris-based Samuel Rixon and Emma Le Doyen - have come up with their own take on the classic Fellini-esque tracking shot for Swim Deep's One Great Song And I Could Change The World, from the band's as-yet unnamed second album.   

Like a modern-day Mastroianni, frontman Austin breaks off from his bandmates at another vacuous houseparty, to traverse the hallways of a building buzzing with life, crossing paths with performers in costume and journalists asking him if he really believes that one great song can change the world.

But instead of engaging them or anyone else, Austin's head is in the clouds...
