A CUMBRIAN singer and her team battled against strong winds, rain and even snow to record her latest music video set in the heart of the Lake District. 

Singer Melanie Baker and Hue media, a London based production company, teamed up to develop an exciting concept for a music video for the singer's latest single, 'False Fantasies'. 

The vision was to place a piano on the summit of a Lake District mountain, something which had never been done before, for Melanie to perform at sunrise.

This vision came to fruition and the video was recorded on the summit of Fleetwith Pike, just as the sun rose on a very chilly April morning.

The concept for the video was developed and directed by Peter Blair, of Hue Media. Peter met Cumbrian singer songwriter Melanie Baker who was looking for a unique video to showcase her latest single.

They wanted to capture the essence of the song, whilst representing the stunning beauty of the Lake District where both Melanie and Peter are originally from. 

In true Cumbrian style the weather provided extra challenges, the team were up against strong winds, rain and even snow.

 To access the summit of Fleetwith Pike, Honister Slate Mine kindly gave the team access to an old mining track so they could safely transport the team and their equipment to the summit.
