I'Anson - Take Hold

This is the first full-length music video made by Maker. It was shot on location in Scotland and published online to coincide with the independent release of I'Anson's single 'Take Hold' in October 2013. We also recorded, produced and mixed the audio for this track, which besides singer-songwriter elements, includes contributions from Steve Janson (Japan/David Sylvian) on percussion, Dudley Phillips (Mark Knopfler, Robert Wyatt) on bass, and the Scottish Ensemble on strings.

The storyboard for the video was designed to illustrate Hugh's 'liberation' by the beautiful island of Jura, on the west coast of Scotland, but we didn't dare script for the magical inclusion of the wild sea otter as the song ends - perfect!
