The Rebel

James Bond Inspired Music Video
'The Rebel' was a music video commission for indie band, 'The Amateurs'.

Chris thought that their track sounded particularly like a James Bond title song. After consulting with the band, Chris designed the video to be an homage to the 007 films.

Chris was meticulous in finding all of the right locations, props and actors to feature in the music video, to give it that big budget spy movie feel. Actor Richard Jack was cast in the role of the 'rebel spy' after working previously with Chris on the film 'Turpin'. Richard exactly fits the description of James Bond in Ian Fleming's first 007 novel, Casino Royale (1952).

"The video was shot over a week and it was like a boys' holiday! Aston Martins, explosions, hand to hand combat sequences... It was a dream come true! The video has had a fantastic reaction from all those that have seen it."

--Chris Stone, Director

The first scene of the video to be shot was the last, the finale on the beach. It was designed as a nod to the famous sequence in 'Dr. No', where Ursula Andress walks out of the water. However, where the real Bond film shot in sunny Jamaica, Chris' production was shot on a miserable rainy Llandudno beach. The illusion of a beautiful sunny day was created in post production, by painstakingly rotoscoping the actors and altering the colours.

'The Rebel' currently has over 187, 000 hits on YouTube, and with the upcoming release of new Bond movie 'Skyfall', the viewing figures are set to rise even further.
