Singer-songwriter Wild Spelks finds himself lumbered with a less-responsive alter-ego in Harry Jenkinson's gently surreal video for Turn It Around.

Shot in Whitley Bay in Northumberland - hometown of both the director and the artist - the video is an idiosyncratic take on living life with mental health problems. Jenkinson makes very good use of a delightful yet often unheralded corner of the country.   

"People in the North East don’t get many opportunities, especially when it comes to the creative industries," says Jenkinson. "The only way to break in is to create something out of nothing, and hope that people can see and hear who you are at the end of it. I think this video does just that and shows the struggle it took to get here."
