James Blake and Martin De Thurah follow on from their collaboration with James' first video Limit To Your Love with the latest single Lindisfarne.

Shot over the course of a night in the Berlin suburbs, it's an intimate portrait of a girl about to leave a group of friends - who perform a ritual to prepare her for the journey ahead.

"James' music is a challenge to write ideas for,' says Martin. "It's very intimate and very honest, and has so much a space in itself. It easily seems irrelevant to make something beautiful for this music - because it is already so full. It's like it doesn't need so much more."

The kids in the film were cast locally - a mix of young actors, friends and street-cast real fans. It's also the first project to be officially produced through A+, the new division of Academy Films focusing on music videos, content and new media projects.
