Music Videos and Extended House Guests

There was the great rush to do all things Kit & Con from the moment we got back to London and started setting up shop.  I knew Con was going back to Australia and we filmed two video shoots within weeks.
Plus Side was perhaps the most fun to shoot- we holed up at Stoke Newington International Airport- this half venue/half artist residence that throws the sickest parties.  Note to self- do not film barefoot on concrete- after dancing around in my slinky red dress for 10 hours, I had one mean-ass cold that lasted a good week after the shoot.
So it was with some trepidation when we decided to go traipsing around London to shoot ‘Oriflamme’.  Kit & Con is anarchist pop- and it made sense that the two videos we shoot were for songs with political undertones- Plus Side was written when I immigrated to New Zealand before I had any residence rights- I couldn’t vote and it was frustrating to not be able to have a say in the place I called home… and Oriflamme means a ‘symbol to rally around’, a phrase coined after the French started carrying a red flag into battle… suffice to say the best place to film the video was at Tent City at St. Paul’s Cathedral in London England.
