Stevie Russell's video for Irish rock band The Coronas' The Long Way is set amongst Dublin's annual scavenge for materials before Halloween. The video features a love triangle akin to the MVA-winning video for Aquilo's Losing You – except here, our three rebellious protagonists goof around and fight, but still manage to pull together an epic bonfire.

Shot on an ARRI Mini with vintage Canon K35 lenses and with a strong black and white LUT, extra care and attention was maintained throughout to keep the feel of the video very period neutral and encourage a nostalgic feel.
