Fiona Kennedy is an exciting singer songwriter who was inspired by the story of the ultra marathon runner Dion Leonard and a brave little dog. Dion was befriended by a little dog who chose to run with him in the Gobi desert. Dion fell in love with the dog and eventually returned with her to the UK and you've guessed it called her 'Gobi'. He has written a book about the adventure called "Finding Gobi".
When Fiona decided to make a music video of her song she obviously didn't have 'Gobi' or even anything like Gobi but she did have her own greatly loved dog Tina. Tina willingly acted as a stand-in for Gobi and performed almost as brilliantly as Fiona.
You know what they say; never work with children or animals! For once they were wrong. We had a lot of fun shooting this video. I'm sure you'll agree Fiona's song is just terrific.

The video was shot on a tight budget over two days. It was edited in Nashville by David Montuy.
I share some of the video here as we create them for our clients. Obviously it is important that our client likes the work and we make revisions until the client says it is ready (within reason.) That said the client needs to be happy at the script stage ever before the filming starts.
