When approaching this project, Theo was not quite sure what he was going to do with this brief.
He knew he wanted to make a video and so he talked to close friends as well as Punkrock Band Marigold Spitfire and turns out coincidentally they had just been rehearsing a song that matched the theme perfectly.
A song called BAD GEORGE, a song about character George getting groomed into gang culture.
The connection being:
Looking into Gang Culture,
Looking out for others,
And looking up for a brighter future.
Hugo Palian: Co-Director
Theo Hartmann: Director
Vocals: Gabriel Consolmagno
Drums: Josh Godfrey
Bass: Reece Sands

Oh you can’t ignore,
He just wants some more,
He fires at you with his pistols,
Left alone with the scoundrels
He’ll buy in
Let him go there ain’t no need for no runners
Groom him well turn him to a top gunner
Take him to the abyss if u wanna
Poor bad George can’t take it no more
So hate absorbed,
As his life unfolds,
He already knows,
He’s gotta take a dip to refresh him,
Count the days that are left to get crowned,
