WEST COAST, Auckland - our second to last day of filming the visuals for a music video for Risky that we started filming on Great Barrier Island. Mara TK of Electric Wire Hustle contributed his lyrics and vocals to the track and he flew up this morning from Wellington for a day's filming. The particular beach we found is akin to a moon-scape. Only surfers and intrepid tourists were brave or fool-hardy enough to embrace the cold rain for a beach stroll. Glistening black sand and an extremely gusty wind meant we had swirling sand dervishes biting at our heels and faces, but it was worth it. We captured some staggeringly effective footage that looks as isolating and alien on "film" as it was in real life.
