We recently collaborated with gorgeous Adelaide based duo Coops + the Bird (Jake Cooper and Bianka Feo) to create their first music video – a visual accompaniment to Crow, the second single off their debut EP.
The moment I first heard the recorded song I had a vision for the clip, and pitched it to the band. They’d already had similar offers from established filmmakers, but luckily for me they loved the idea. We filmed over four days on Hindmarsh Island, South Australia.
This was my first time directing, and I couldn’t have done it without Alastair Innes’ amazing cinematography and Carolina Facelli’s invaluable production assistance, styling and makeup skills, as well as her beautiful costume design (as seen in Bianka’s ‘Crow’ skirt). Huge thanks also go to my brother Will Spartalis for his help in post production, and to Glenn Jaunzarins and Alexis Bromilow for their company (and for keeping us filled with delicious food and beverages throughout the shoot).
I hope you enjoy the film.
