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.


"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."
