When you get a call starting with, “We’re on to make a music video next week,” it all seems a great idea.
Then you realise what you need to make it really happen. And that’s how, with one week’s notice, we suddenly had a lot to organise. A week later, and after many phone calls to great friends in Verbier, we had turned an idea into reality. Suddenly we had an apres bar, party-goers, a stunt-skier, an action-sports filmer, three additional filmers, a helicopter, a cute pilot, a storyboard and lots of champagne. And most importantly, though more by luck than anything – a sunny day!
To all the ‘fantastic’ people who made it possible (in no particular order): Le Rouge, Heli-Alps, Guido Perrini, Andy Bennett, Farinet Lounge, and Mr Fantastic himself: David John. A big thank you!
