This is one of the shortest music videos I have come across, with only three songs, no interviews and a total length of 12 minutes. But the image quality is far better than the average Christian music video. The first track is "Grey Clouds" which is shown in a pseudo sepia effect with elongated distortion of the image has the best photography of the three. The second "Wind An' Sea" uses a mix of live footage with other images. The third track "Sondancer" is an excuse for Peter King to show that he is not just a good musician but also an international surfing champion. The close up surfing shots are amazing, not just for Peter's surfing, but for the risk the cameraman must have taken to get some of the shots. There is also snowboarding and skateboarding mixed in. The standard of filming in these videos is very good and is capable of standing alongside some of the higher budget secular videos. What comes across most though in this video is the sense of excitement and fun the band have as they perform. This is a thoroughly enjoyable video.
