We're partial to a bit of Georgia Fair at B6 and we love a good fan-made video, so we're interested in the fact that the Melbourne duo recently invited fans attending the Australian Open Of Surfing on Sydney’s Manly Beach to collaborate on their above video for Blind.
In an Australian first, fans were asked to find inspiration in the song and the surf, take free reign and simply shoot. To take part, it was a case of borrowing a Sony camera and then entering their three favourite lifestyle shots into the competition. Georgia Fair’s video director, Andrew Lancaster, explains how the collaborative footage builds the storyline for the final cut: “We discover Ben and Jordan making their way ashore in a tiny boat having salvaged a treasure chest. As they travel, memories of summer are projected around them. The emotion of the song is captured in dreamlike slow mo and the user-generated shots from the Australian Open of Surfing become beautiful nostalgic reflections of good times passed.”
Blind is taken from the duo’s critically-acclaimed album All Through Winter and features not only the production of Bill Reynolds of Band of Horses but also his band-mate Tyler Ramsey playing the piano.
If you are Sydney-based, you can catch Georgia Fair at the Beach Road Hotel on Wednesday 14th March. Oh, and entry is FREE!
