Joe Wheatley's latest video for Willie J Healey - his fourth for songs from the singer-songwriter's new album Twin Heavy - is his simplest: Healey plays Big Nothing, captured in a single take. It starts in a close-up, and then it gets wider, revealing the specacular location for the performance.

As Wheatley points out, it's the result of some quick thinking while shooting Healey's entertaining video for True Stereo, in the Scottish Highlands.  

"This was one of those 'whilst you're there' add-ons from the label," he explains. "I had a simple idea I wanted to execute. After a long day's shooting in the mountains, Will went back to the house, put on his suit and joined us at the loch. For something that was indeed an afterthought I'm really pleased with the result."
