"I worked with Paul on the video for my single, Pretty Colours.  I wanted to give him a free hand on the video and gave him only two conditions - that I didn't have to spend much time on it and that I was to do it indoors, a basic performance video.  I think it's fair to say it is anything but a 'basic' performance video. Yes, it's me standing in front of the camera singing a song, but what Paul then did with that blew me away. He took the themes in the song and gave them the visuals.  I can't imagine how anyone could interpret the lyrics and sound any better to be honest, it's so full of power and energy. The actual working prices was very laid back and relaxed but at the some time serious.  He directed, I did what he told me. Once my bit was done he kept in constant contact with me, showing me the work in progress throughout. Eventually it was done and was brilliant.  To top all that, he did a much better job of promoting it online than I ever did!  I'd work with Paul again at the drop of a hat if the opportunity every presented itself,  and I recommend you should too."
