Vance Joy – Mess is Mine

Michael Shanks recently helped out with Visual Effects on this beautiful and quirky music video for Vance Joy’s debut album, Dream Your Life Away, directed by the very talented Luci Schroder. We first worked with Luci on a TVC she directed for The Big Issue back in 2009 – and it’s so nice to see she’s still kicking goals and creating wonderful art.

The clip was cut by our very good friend Michael J. Lutman and graded by the amazingly talented Roslyn Di Sisto – the same awesome duo that worked on Rocketman.
