Hayden Thorpe launches his latest video 'The Universe Is Always Right’, directed by Tom Haines.
Director Tom Haines explains more about the project: "Hayden is an old friend who escaped London during the pandemic to his native Cumbria. He shared his new music with a notion to set something up there and we knew that this was going to be a community effort in more ways than one to get it made.
"Listening to The Universe Is Always Right, and talking to Hayden about his experiences of re-encountering the Lakes - it conjured ideas about healing, about the way we’ve tapped into nature, and space, and used dead time as a positive, and I really wanted to explore that through a mythical, mystical narrative."
"We struck gold with Mary and Alec who ran a farm, as well as a charity called Growing Well. Mary embraced us with open arms and before we knew it they were offering us all kinds of locations, cast, and animals, it was exactly the kind of luck we needed. Luck was a theme on the project, luck with our amazing crew, luck with the weather, luck with everyone being so positive and helpful, and maybe that’s echoed in the "
"Ultimately I wanted it to feel like a British take on a Studio Ghibli film, uncanny, at times uneasy but mainly uplifting and hopeful."
