We were invited to shoot a video with French band Fortune during the Modern Sky Festival in October last year.
Delighted at the opportunity we hopped on the fast train to Beijing and met with the the band after their afternoon concert at the Huairou Ski Resort where the festival was being held.
Together with another band's acoustic guitar and a keyboard we went looking for a good spot to shoot a video together.
The festival took place just below the Great Wall of China but as hiking wasn't really an option we settled for a boat in a man-made lake nearby occupied by Beijing families with puppies coming out for a rent-a-rod-and-fish experience. The guys decided to record one of their singles "Bully" and did so in a harmonious mix of fish, ducks and Chinese amateur fishermen.
