11 Apr WEEKENDS
We first met Amy on set while shooting a commercial for the Gold Coast Titans, little did we know that this cam op and editor had a voice! And her talent for music was off the charts! (insert cough… PLATINUM) Needless to say after a little hustle we are chuffed to say that we got to co-direct with Amy and shoot her latest single “Weekends”.
It was a Monday night, the local IGA was still in operation as we sneakily set up lights and soon took over, aisle by aisle. We shot into the wee hours of the morning, so things did get a little cray, cray… here’s the behind the scenes…
Amy Billings, who performs as Amy Shark, is an Australian indie pop singer-songwriter and producer from the Gold Coast, Queensland. She is best known for her 2016 single “Adore”, which was voted in at number 2 on the Triple J Hottest 100, 2016.
Shark grew up on the Gold Coast and attended Southport State High School throughout her teenage years. She has been a video editor for the Gold Coast Titans and a resident of Broadbeach Waters with her husband Shane and has been active as a musician on YouTube since 2014. In 2016, Shark won Pop Song of the Year at the Queensland Music Awards, and embarked on a nationwide tour. She performed her single “Adore”, released in 2016 with production assistance from M-Phazes and Cam Bluff, in addition to a cover of Silverchair’s “Miss You Love” for Like a Version. “Adore” received significant media attention as one of two frontrunners to take out first place in the Triple J Hottest 100, 2016, alongside Flume’s “Never Be like You”; it was later voted in second place.
