THE BELLIGERENTS
Science Fiction

The Belligerents, a five-piece band from Brisbane, had already shot a video for the first single, ‘Flash’ –  now they wanted a sequel for the title track.

In ‘Flash’, a scientist sends a dog into space – and we had to continue the story. Creating a sequel to another director’s film was something we hadn’t tackled before, and it came with its own unique challenges.

Casting Lewis as the quirky dreamer and aspiring astronaut allowed us to add a little surreal humour to everyday scenarios and settings while anchoring the film to a repeated lyric in the track: ‘Why can’t I fly away from Earth’.

And the authentic-looking space suit took us two weeks to track down – because we know just how important the right props and costumes are to telling a really great story.
