Under The Holly Tree

Music Video

Lukas Himmelrenner, a friend of mine, asked me on Boxing Day morning if I could help him with a video shoot for his newest composition. The sky was clear, a beautiful layer of snow had fallen overnight and he felt that it was too magical to miss. The conditions were pretty cold; it was about -8°C with a chilly wind and for most of the shots I wasn’t wearing a coat so we were moving quickly! Just as we were wrapping things up a herd of wild boar ran across the camera.

The story Born Of Thorns inspired Lukas to compose this piece and when he played it for me I loved it. It perfectly combines the more sombre elements of the story with the underlying theme of hope.
