This still from the video Never Stop (Live Version), was taken in the Pyrenees from film I shot during a trip to Spain with the actors Charlotte Quita Jones and Cesare Taurasi when we went to the Huesca Film Festival back in 2014 with my film A Short Epic About Love that both actors starred in - There was a waterfall an hour away we wanted to go to see - We were working together on my radio drama, Jim, which features a waterfall scene in the story - you can listen to the scene on the Inspiration page on the Jim Project Pages on this website - Charlotte and Cesare play the main roles in it. Many months after, when I had the idea of creating the music video with the live performance of the love song Never Stop, to promote the play and the wonderful soundtrack specially composed for it by the band Desert Mountain Tribe, it was joyous to include the footage of the waterfall and to remember our day visiting that beautiful, unspoiled place, which illustrated the scene from the story, where the hero takes the heroine on a Desert Drive to Tahquitz Canyon! Creating this narrative video was a happy and organic 'living' process and I am so pleased that it has been so well received!
