This high energy clip, set in the WWII era, comes complete with gas masks, red lipstick, nylon pantyhose and Jimmy the Dwarf as a WWII fighter pilot. With a great concept and execution, clever editing and a big budget look, the boys have a world class product to be proud of.
Featuring Minuit performing a kooky WWII style gig in a smokey sake bar at the foot of Mount Fuji, this lavish clip merges stunning Japanese imagery and costuming with enchanting choreography. The video from choreographer turned director Alyx Duncan (The Red House) won gongs for Best Cinematographer and Best Editor at the 2006 Kodak Music Video Awards.
Creating New Zealand's first local hit involved a lot of trial and error, as a company best known for making radios grappled with how to make records. Sixty-six years later Neil Finn visited musician Jim Carter, whose Hawaiian-style guitar is part of the magic of the original 'Blue Smoke' track. Finn "gently persuaded" Carter to help him record a new version on a laptop in just a few hours. Alongside newsreel shots of WWII soldiers, this evocative clip features footage of two musicians from different generations sharing memories, and making music about saying goodbye.
