St Francis Hotel
You’d Gotta Be Alive

St Francis Hotel is an Irish musical duo based in London. Their music has gained international support from stations including BBC Radio 6 Music and KCRW.

For one of their latest singles, “You’d Gotta Be Alive”, I directed a docu-style music video that profiles the culture of gun-ownership in the United States. More about the film can be read in an extensive write-up published on Directors Notes. The film has also been featured on Booooooom.
