The Picnic Tree video

Jack and I made this video for The Picnic Tree from Dead Sea Shanties. It was all shot near Winchcombe, Gloucestershire, on the way to a tree we can see from our house that we call the picnic tree (we had a really great picnic there once). Ironically, the tree itself  doesn’t appear in the video, although the last zoom-out shot was taken at its foot. This might be an artistic decision. In The Nettlemen, the story that’s told in the second half of Dead Sea Shanties, the tree takes on a more tragic significance, being the place where the childhood friends had once played.
