Sydney based Indie-pop band Nova & The Experience’s song “Shipwrecked” is taken off their third EP, ‘There’s Something Here’. Discovering the song on Australia’s Triple J Unearthed website, Ciara Hehir conceived the video’s concept after visiting La Perouse, Sydney. Having pitched to the band, Ciara and partner Bryan Coelho, of Wanderer Pictures, worked to create a world fitting for ‘Shipwrecked’. Inspired by ‘Where the Wild Things Are’, and the lost boys of ‘Hook’, this video brings the lyrics to life through childhood adventure and wonderment. Thanks to the children (Toby, Isabella, Nelson, Alexi, Christian, Jazz and Caleb) and their parents, helpers Taylor & Shan, and to N.A.T.E: James, Anna, Laurie and Jake.
