COLLABORATORS REVIEW OF 2010 : TOM LEVINGE






















I'm a music video director but I've also had a crack at documentaries, sketches, shorts, dog walking and am currently writing and gambling a dangerous amount.

2010 was a terrible year. Political unrest, appalling sports performances, general sinister goings on BUT I did have the good fortune to collaborate with Alun, who has been nominated Wales' suavest man three years in a row. He keeps the certificates hidden away in a secret drawer, but if you ask he'll show you them, they're very fancy.

Alun, Rod (Bright Light Bright Light) and I (along with a super talented team too long to mention here) created the Love Part II video, with very few resources, but a generally agreed upon idea that it should look beautiful and present BLBL as a powerful new pop sensation. Alun's vision and good humour really brought the project to life and we had a great time shooting it. His suggestions and use of reference materials were totally inspiring and I can't wait for our next project.

I'm just about to shoot my first ever 3D video and have some really, really stupid stuff in development. 2011 is the year that we all hit the big time.
