Abbie Stephens sends up the process of making a music video, in her charming video for Katy J Pearson.On one level, Katy is making a Lumiere-inspired music video for Talk Over Town, performing in a number of imaginative studio set-ups, complete with wacky styling and colourful art direction. But then we also see behind the curtain of the making of this film, as she good-naturedly deals with the crew and the demands of the director - played by Charlie Hansen.Unlike Katy and her fictional director, the collaboration with Abbie Stephens has been rather more successful. Stephens has created a visual feast - somewhat playful and tongue-in-cheek - and blended that with whimsical humour. And then it develops further with a twist of pure surrealism.Having flourished in the commercial world in recent years, its a very welcome return to music videos for Abbie Stephens, and she has presented out a new aspect to Pearson's on-screen personality that will appeal to her devoted legion of fans.
