Most looking forward to in your New Music Shorts film?
What we have been looking forward to is already happening. We are really enjoying being out there in different parts of England spending time with some great couples who are opening up their homes to us. It's been very inspiring to listen to their stories. At the moment we just look forward to delivering 'our baby'.
What made you choose 'Twin Tub Twin'?
The track just stuck with us straight away. We love everything about it, the melody, the lyrics, the mood. After listening to it probably a thousand times now we're still not sick of it.
What are you never on set without?
Shot-list, pen and notebook.
Best thing about being in the film industry?
Being able to extract abstract thoughts and ideas out of one's head and slowly seeing them come to life, not to mention witnessing them taking a life of its own once they're finished.
