We created this cute little music video for Melbourne-based folk-band Huckleberry and Me for their debut single, What is the What. The clip was devised and directed by Nicholas Colla and Michael Shanks with the latter also helming the visual effects.

Special thanks to all who helped on the clip, especially our three very talented young actors Harrison Croft, Eva Hayes and Brandon Booth.

You can buy the album on iTunes.

You can listen to the band on the Triple J Unearthed website.

You can also follow the band on Facebook.
