Nueva : 'Summer's Lament'

This is a Lockdown DIY music video for Nueva's debut track Summer's Lament shot in my garden on a mobile phone. The project was a response to being locked down through most of 2020 / Winter 2021. The experience inspired the band to write the song, and inspired the video, having spend many evenings sitting around a camp-fire at the bottom of the garden. Using the tools that we had available we set ourselves that challenge of making a music film within a week from concept stage / organising through to sending the final film up to YouTube. Sometimes it takes working with slim resources and setting hard boundaries as the tonic to get you up and making again after a long time of inactivity.
