Bastian Glaessner's video for singer-songwriter Nick Mulvey's Unconditional depicts the extreme highs and lows of the relationship of a young couple living in a caravan park, affected by the wild moodswings of the girl in the partnership.

Glaessner, former member of pioneering directing team Lynn Fox, creates a fiercely credible story in familiar territory, with standout performances from his young leads. There's gritty intensity, but also old-fashioned love and romance, which suits with the passionate mood and melody of Mulvey's track.

BASTIAN GLAESSNER:

"Unconditional is a little ode to that first serious relationship - an amazing time we can all relate to. It’s the first image that popped into my head when listening to the track, which has a real intrinsic sweetness. Unlike the little romances one has in the schoolyard though, it’s also the time one learns to dig deep and stick it out no matter what. That’s Unconditional too, it’s not all sweetness, it’s a tale of love & despair. "
