David Knight - 3rd Aug 2014

This superb video for Alt-J's Hunger Of The Pine comes from an idea by the band's Joe Newman, transformed into a pure and unique form of action-entertainment by Nabil. 

A brilliant technical feat featuring Ashley 'Spyder' Holland as the man who can resist a blizzard of arrows...

Our interview with Nabil about the making of his Hunger Of The Pine video will be on PROMONEWS very soon...
