David Knight - 23rd May 2018

Salomon Ligthelm creates a hypotic dreamscape for Bearcubs, with a flight into fantasy inspired by a clip of Disney's Peter Pan, witnessed on TV by the dozing protagonist.

Beautifully shot by Stuart Winecoff on 16mm, the video for Underwaterfall becomes a journey through the imagination. And it's all the more impressive that it came together at very short notice, as Ligthelm explains.

SALOMON LIGHTELM:

"It was one of those experiences where you just pick up the camera and go. We basically pulled the whole thing together in a day or two - a bunch of mates were in town around the same time fortunately...

"So we just hustled together to make it happen. Nothing too precious or planned out - I just wanted to have a good time with friends, working on a fun track."
