Ish Sahotay's video for FineArt brings the club to spin class for their 2-step banger Don’t Wanna Rush. It's essentially a modern reworking of the famous/infamous Eric Prydz video for Call On Me, with an all-girl class of professional dancers.

Very sadly, Ish Sahotay's life was cut short soon after shooting this video. The 26 year old had directed several low budget videos, and was just starting to make a serious impact as a director, particularly with his Little Boots video for Taste It – now shortlisted for Best Dance Video - Budget category at the UK Music Video Awards next month – when he passed away in June.

To celebrate his life, his friend Jake Bulstrode-White created a Go Fund Me campaign to put on an Exhibition of all his work, which took place on the 17th July at the Apiary Studios. On the page, Bulstrode-White said this of his friend: 

"Ish Sahotay was a 26 year old up and coming Director/Photographer.  After 4 years of working his way up through the industry his career had finally started to flourish, there seemed to be no end to his success.

"Tragically on the 16th June 2015 Ish went to bed and didn't wake up. He was full of so much talent and ideas, anyone that had the honour of meeting him will know how much of a loss to the world his passing was."
