"90% of budget went on hiring the sofa and armchair," says Alexander O. Smith (the director formerly known as Alex Smith), referring to his new Donny Benét video. He certainly came up with a novel way for not paying extras to play the party guests.

This is a thoroughly entertaining video for a leading light in Australia's burgeoning indie-lounge-disco scene, where Smith used motion control in a rather more lo-fi way that they used to back in the Nineties. That's what makes it so fab - that, and the sofa and armchair, of course...
