This video was shot in three hours on a sunny autumn afternoon. The aim was to create a stylised video which remained true to the bands culture.
"I am a huge fan of both the Hot 8 Brass Band and their label Tru Thoughts. Being given the opportunity to make a video for Sexual Healing, arguably the bands most famous and popular track was pretty incredible. As the band were on tour from New Orleans with very little time in the UK we were on a pretty tight timeframe to get the video done. What I set out to do was create a video that captured the bands amazing culture and energy, a little slice of New Orleans in the heart of Brighton which is Tru Thoughts home. The band were incredible and everywhere we shot we drew a huge crowd.
At our final destination, Gardener Street at the heart of the North Laines there was an amazing reception with hundreds of people out on the street to listen to the bands music and the atmosphere which surrounds them. For us it was an amazing experience and exactly the kind of thing we love to film."
