Film clip a first for all

A SEXY music clip filmed in historic Gympie restaurant, Kingston House, has been a triple first.

A first for the Australian Institute of Country Music’s AICM record label, it signed artists Sista Burley and creative director Juliet Wookey.

Juliet filmed her first music clip for Sista Burley’s debut single Coming After You in one sitting on Monday.

Sisters Rebecca and Katrina Burley said the film shoot was fun, especially considering they had nothing to do but make singing in a cupboard look glamorous. Some eye candy helped the boredom.

“We can’t wait to see the end result. From what we could gather it looks amazing,” they gushed on their Facebook page.

Coming After You is the second track on Sista Burley’s self-titled debut EP, which has been played on the Hot Country Top 50 charts for the past three weeks. It recently moved up the charts from number 47 to 42.

“There’s a bit of a twist to the story,” Rebecca said.

“When you listen to the track without the clip and then see the clip without the track you get two different images. I think the images will tie together well.”

Juliet achieved quite a lot on a tiny budget to get the result she was after and was already a quarter of the way through the editing process.

She said it was starting to look “really good”.

The model worked for nothing in return for expenses and exposure while borrowed items helped set the scene.

“It’s all been a whirlwind couple of weeks,” Juliet said. “We came up with the theme of tables being turned.

“At the beginning we see the sisters but viewers won’t know they’re locked up in a cupboard.

“The gist is – with the girls in cupboard and the model in room – it’s like different worlds until the last second when he locks the cupboard doors and leaves.”

Rebecca and Katrina head off to Canada on Friday with a stop in Nashville before returning to perform on the Gympie Muster Main Stage in August, which is part of the prize for winning the Maton Talent Search in 2010.
