A young Jehovah's Witness embraces her struggle in Allyn Quigley's video for I Want To Get Right. 

Following Brendan Canty's video for I Was Wrong, this is the second visual created as part of Jape's Sentinel Video Project, in which eight directors have created music videos for each of the tracks on the album. 

In the middle of the hustle and bustle of a busy Dublin street, the young girl - played winningly by Hazel Doupe - desperately tries to spread her message to passers-by without success. As the potential for giving up looms over her, she decides to have some fun with what she is doing, dancing around the space like a ballerina. 

It's a simple concept, much like the previous segment, but it is beautifully executed: a fine acting performance captured in the midst of busy reality, to create a charming slice of life. 

ALLYN QUIGLEY:

Evan Barry did an amazing job of shooting it so beautifully in the midst of the madness of Black Friday.

"The video itself is about just trying to enjoy whatever you’re doing, finding a moment of gleeful freedom and how much it helps you connect with the people and world around you.

"We had a great time making this and our DoP Evan Barry did an amazing job of shooting it so beautifully in the midst of the madness of Black Friday. The use of the zoom lens also really helped give the video an observational feel while also allowing us to go largely unnoticed for the day."
