BAFTA award-winning director, Mark Jenkin has created a haunting and moody music video whilst in lockdown for the British Alternative-Pop band, Flyte. 

The latest single Easy Tiger has a wonderfully simple, analogue feel which marries perfectly with the Bullion director’s signature style of ‘one man and his camera’. 

Jenkin's BAFTA winning feature Film Bait has been called one of the defining British films of the decade. Jenkin has painstakingly built an ‘artefact’ by hand from his quiet isolation in Cornwall and the results are breath-taking. Combining vintage found footage and original material shot in isolation by Jenkin, each frame feels like a miniature masterpiece. A misty galaxy of hand painted colours and shapes with brief encounters of familiarity hidden deep inside the celluloid.

Mark Jenkin: “It was fun to work on a project with such an open brief within the confines of lockdown and the creative freedom that extreme practical limitations provide”

Will Taylor of Flyte: “It was a big surprise learning that Mark wanted to work with us on the video for this track. We were big fans of his film Bait that came out last year for which he won a bloody Bafta. And it’s been perfect for both of us in this time of quarantine. We can send ideas back and forth to each other. Us in our London flats and Mark down in his place in Cornwall painting over old reels of film and creating this incredible cinematic sculpture. There’s a darkness and an emotional rawness to his work that suited Easy Tiger perfectly. It would have been hard to trust anyone else with it really.”
