(5:10 / Music Promo)

Cast: Tony Claassen, Johann Myers, Penny Linfield, Steve Fung, Shaun Mechen

An idyllic village in the Scottish highlands is attacked by a giant loudspeaker with a score to settle, but only two men have the earplugs. Commissioned as a music video for Funk D'Void by Soma Records and presented as a short film.

Worldwide sales for this title are represented by Shorts International.

On a limited budget, one of the most striking low budget promos"of 2001. Edited with verve and directed with an eye for detail, Bass Invaders is an exciting, imaginative and original promo. Given the high production values it is a miracle that it was produced for just £5k.
Mirrorball

A fun concept well executed, Bass Invaders is a solid example of what a music video should be: engaging, innovative, primed for re-viewing.
M.V.P.A (Music Video Production Association)

Bloody miraculous on the budget, incessant action, a classic shoot-em-up.
Promo magazine

A far cry from those glamour videos with beautiful girls sitting around the pool enjoying the sunshine and dreaming.
