The latest Desmond and The Tutus video directed by Hanro Havenga.
Up and coming on the photography and video scene, Hanro Havenga is soon to be joining the diverse array of talent that is Lampost.
Having had no luck in getting a return flight to Durban, it was a good impromptu decision that Hanro would board the van with Desmond and The Tutus.
The video tells an amusing narrative of the bands road trip to Durban. As anticipated, Lampost characters Craig Durrant and Douglas Bower gave an awesome performance.
At the end of last year Lampost was involved in one of the funnest jobs in ages! The campaign featured Desmond & the Tutu's (you'll recognise Lampost character models Doug and Craig) in the best costumes you will ever see the band in! The amazing styling was done by Lampost's Candice Moore and the miraculous transformations were thanks to makeup and hair stylist Michel Ingoglia also of Lampost (along with the ever fantastic Lyn Kennedy). The agency was Jupiter Drawing Room JHB and was shot by Merwelene Van Der Merwe.
Another post featuring Lampost's Craig Durrant (who performs in Desmond and the Tutus and Yo Grapes), as well as Jacques Moolman of SAMA award-winning rock band Shadowclub. Directed by Trevor Clarence, "Lucy" will definitely have you hitting the replay button!
