Thanks also to NZOnAir for supporting great New Zealand music.
Word from Happy on KISS THE SKY (Official Music Video):
"Ok, let’s talk about the new video from Tunes Of I… this thing is an all-out explosion of wonderful weirdness [...] I feel like I’ve just come off a really intense trip, but I’m not complaining. In fact, I can’t wait to do it all again."
Here it is!

Presenting The Nudge - Dark Arts (Official Music Video)
Premiered by RNZ Music.
Many, many thanks to the wonderful Nudge - it was such a fun, hassle-free video that allowed us to share our love of Great Barrier Island with you, as well as it's icy winter waters...
We spent two days on Great Barrier Island with The Nudge filming their new music video for their track 'Dark Arts'. We went from wetsuits in the ocean to crouching around a roaring fire with golden rune stones - it was a wild and fantastical visual ride.
Sophi got some scuba gear on and filmed the lads in a tranquil and deep rock pool, while Mark opted for a winter dip sans wetsuit! We filmed across Medlands Beach + were once again amazed by the beauty of the island. We were outrageously lucky with the weather and made the very most of it. Massive thanks to The Nudge for such a great shoot - this was outrageous fun + The Nudge were stoic despite the winter cold.
What a blast. The Nudge sure know how to bring pace + vibe to a music video set.
We have been lucky enough to be able to test-drive the impressive new green screen at Massey University (WGTN) and we will be heading off to Great Barrier Island to film The Nudge in some scuba-åction glory later in the month.
This video has introduced a lot of new material, new experiences + new gear into the Peach fold - we've been filming with a legitimate + massive green screen for the first time, working with The Nudge on our first conceptual music video collaboration, and shooting with some ridiculously good new gear. We've brought the Nikon D750, the Sigma Fisheye + Sigma Art Series 35mm 1.4 into the mix! We're pretty excited about the visuals + abstract videography we'll be playing with.
Massive thanks to Massey, NZOnAir + these fantastic lads.
Talk about working with a professional - Louis was on task and hitting his marks time after time with his performance for our new collaborative music video project. Louis received NZOA funding to create a music video for his new track "Rainbow" and we were presented with the challenge to create a video that showcases Louis' powerful, honest and stripped-back delivery.
We made our way through seven locations in and around central Wellington, Carterton, the Tora coastline and Martinborough, filmed in streaming sunlight and torrential rain, and ambled along bush walks, beaches and shingle pathways. We're both really looking forward to putting together this video - more soon!
We have been travelling around the Wellington, Martinborough and Carterton scouting for the right filming locations for an exciting upcoming music video project. New Zealand - we've got to hand it to you. What a stunner.
Here we are!

Oh, bonjour! Nous pensons que vous aimerez cette vidéo! From Paris, city of revolution and romance, we're pleased to present AIRBORNE \\ A3 - Adam Page "Bread and Sticks".
We can't believe it's already time to unveil this video set to an unreleased looping, swelling and hypnotising track from Adam Page. Despite Sophi falling ill during filming, we captured as much of this city's charm, simple gastronomic pleasures, scents (yes, scents!) and iconic structures as we could.
Intro music by The All Seeing Hand
Well, we're finishing up the last of our edits for AIRBORNE \\ and our music video postcards are making us remember and re-engage with all our adventures. We've created the opening credits and thanks to THE ALL SEEING HAND, we have some beautiful music to accompany them. The track sets the mood for our music video postcard series perfectly - thanks guys!
CHECK OUT THE ALL SEEING HAND!

San Francisco is lovely, but New York City has won over our hearts, particularly the Bushwick area, in Brooklyn. We were lucky to stay in an industrial area frequented and inhabited by creatives, specifically in a notorious apartment, the 'Sky Fortress'. Our hosts were an amazing group of individuals who welcomed us with open arms and whose artistic and travelling endeavours are thoroughly inspiring. They and their friends (Stephanie, and 'The Brians', Brian and Brian being the most memorable of these satellite friends) hosted a BBQ and movie night on their building's rooftop, which provides a 360 degree view of Brooklyn and the Manhattan skyline. Unbelievable.
We're hoping to return to the Sky Fortress next year to work on a few projects - we'll be back!
AIRBORNE \\ updates - NEW YORK CITY : Joe Blossom
We had a week to capture the spirit of New York City, and our keywords for this video (as pitched by Joe Blossom) were 'Nostalgia' and 'Abstract'. We filmed the bustling, humid city in the magical light of twilight as well as in Subway stations, and on the rooftop of the Sky Fortress. We captured snippets of New York wherever we went, from Williamsburg to Midtown and we are looking forward to editing our music video postcard together.
SAN FRANCISCO : Louis Baker
What a whirlwind! We had 24 hours to film this video - and San Francisco gave us fog, clouds, bright sunshine and even a hummingbird. The colourful, stand-alone houses and the summer chill on the other coastline of the USA provided such a contrast to our New York experience. We were lucky enough to participate in working on part of a decorative piece that will be featured as a shrine at the Burning Man festival this year, and that will be burned right underneath the Burning Man. Such a creative ebb and flow to this hilly, foggy city.
MORE SOON! We're getting very excited that we've wrapped our filming and will be able to get our music video postcards out by MID AUGUST >>
Have you been exploring our website recently? If you have, you may have noticed that a new page has appeared in our "videography" section.
AIRBORNE \\ is an exciting project we embark on this May, as we venture off on overseas adventures in SE Asia, Europe and the USA. Working with previously unreleased tracks from 7 NZ musicians/bands, we are filming 7 music video postcards in 7 overseas locations, capturing our understanding of the spirit of each new place and setting it to sounds of home. We have strict criteria to follow, as videographers - we have 3 hours to film in each location, and 72 hours to edit together a video. We are also given a time of day (dictated by the musicians) to film, a theme, colour and keyword that describes the tone of the melody.
From mid-August 2015 we will release these AIRBORNE \\ videos, one per week. It's going to be a beautiful collaboration between extremely talented NZ artists and our visual medium. We've already received some of the tracks we're to work with - we feel very privileged to be working with such fantastic material.
Click here for the locations - artists to be released soon!
We're getting really excited about releasing our video for this hauntingly beautiful track from the wonderful Trinity Roots fellows - not long now! We developed the video concept with the band and the hugely talented people at Body FX, and had so much fun working on this unusual video.
We filmed the video in colour but our actors were made up in monochromatic make-up, producing a silent film era colour scale. The props, set and costumes were also sourced and made to the monochromatic aesthetic. Keep an eye out for mermaids...

Huge aroha + thanks to Trinity Roots and New Zealand On Air!
We flew down to Wellington to work on a new music video for a fantastic Trinity Roots track from their upcoming album. We had such fun filming this video - a great group of actors/artists sourced from Wellington and Auckland, and a superb team from body art, make up and special effects maestros, BODYFX. It was a weekend filled with laughter, that managed to run to schedule as well!
Johnny Matias, Carolin Prinn, Asher Norris, Lance Ravenswood, James Deane, Kowhai Wilkie and Hannah Sinclair were all fantastic fun actors to work with and were all happy and quick to take on direction when it was given to them. Many thanks to The Costume Cave who provided extraordinary assistance in achieving an authentic 1920s monochrome selection of outfits, to the solutions guru Tim Holman who dedicated his skills and so many hours of his time to helping us out. Thanks also to Jaz Hales who joined us on Saturday and helped out and to Joff Rae.
Below are some behind-the-scenes images of the shoot.
