To escape the misery and disappointment of reality, Jango Flash - that's North Shields-based musician-producer Jack Angus Golightly - attempts to live out his childhood dream of being an astronaut, in Matthew Willson's charming promo for Perseid 45. 

Blasting off in a cardboard rocket, with an inflatable sex doll for a co-pilot - bearing a passing resemblance to his ex-girlfriend - Jango heads for the stars. It’s a tale of loneliness, escapism and childlike imagination.

A passion project for director Willson, producer Sel Maclean and Golightly, the production embraced the same DIY approach present in the story itself. Relying heavily on favours and recycled resources, the video was shot on a super modest budget, while never sacrificing the quality of the ambitious story they set out to tell.
