Back in February I flew to Patagonia partly to travel & shoot with Daktyl. He decided to live in Patagonia for 7 weeks to finish an album he had been working on for a little while.
We just went around and shot some random stuff, without any real plan. Back in L.A. he then did an interview and I spent a (fair) few days cutting it down from an hour long to 2 mins, and pairing with some nice shots. All rocked to the guitar of his track Ku Ring Gai (out now 😉)
Here’s a testimonial to what he thinks about the video.

Back in January when I was trying to finish my album in Los Angeles I hit a wall. There was so much going on in my personal life and career and that was becoming too much. The pressure of this combined with the pressure I was getting from the music industry to finish my album was really getting to me.. and to make it worse I was partying all the time as a way of coping with everything.. spending all my money on pointless things. I don’t want to get into the details too much but I felt a strong urge to just run away from everything. So I pretty much spent the rest of the money in my bank account on a solo 2 month trip to Patagonia in the Southern Andes of South America. It was the best decision of my life and one of the best experiences I’ve ever had. It was difficult at times, incredibly lonely and scarily introspective.. I hardly saw another person for 7 weeks which was definitely surreal. But I think / hope I’ve come out of it a better person. This album is about me allowing myself to enjoy sound and music again and forget the bullshit. I’m truly looking forward to sharing it with you, thank you for being here for the ride. Also thanks to my good friend @benyscott for meeting me for a small part of the trip to document some of it, you’re the best man. – Rich
