MEI 'Happy Man' by Tom Ringsby
Tom Ringsby directs a lilting promo for genre-blending artist MEI.

"This song was so sad, but hopeful at the same time. I wanted to visualise that feeling of light at the end of the tunnel by sticking MEI in the muddy Thames-water, dressed for a red carpet-event, while performing with a heavy-metal bass.
"She smashed it as always - as did the streamlined Intergalactic family who made it happen with us. DoP Henry Gill and colourist Andi H. Chu really achieved our most painterly collaboration so far. Look at that pink and blue water, man. Art!"
