Students direct new Kingsland Road music video

Current students on the Filmmaking HND course at Brighton Film School were involved in an exciting professional project recently, directing and producing a new music video for one of pops biggest boy-bands about to burst on the scene. Kingsland Road are a five-piece vocal group who have already demonstrated their potential having reached the televised finals of X-Factor in 2013 and commissioned Anthony Tete, a student in the 2nd year of his Filmmaking HND course to direct their new video, a cover of Ellie Gouldings super-hit 'Burn'.

Anthony used the skills and experiences he has already gained on the course, including a music video he shot as part of his 1st year, to plan this high-quality professional project that has already been seen by 22,000 on Youtube. Anthony negotiated with the band and their management to secure a sizeable budget for the shoot, which he then used to source a location, pay for high-end equipment and hire industry professionals to fulfill some of the technical roles required. The majority of the crew roles used for the shoot were filled by students on the Filmmaking HND 1st and 2nd year, with Olivia Lilburn taking on the prominent role of producer.

Anthony spoke of the experience:

In November we were approached with the brief to work on the official Kingsland Road music video, for their latest song. After received the track and having researched the band we thought it would be a good idea to show both their performing side and their fun side, the fireman performance element does that nicely.

It was great working with the band! They Excellent performers and really nice guys. They’ve  matured enormously since leaving the X Factor and are really coming into their own as musicians. We want to offer a huge thanks to the Brighton Film School, for all their help and support. This was a great experience and we can’t wait for the next project
