Pete Wild and team transform Candelo into film set

Candelo’s old town charm graced the cameras on Saturday as singer Pete Wild recorded a film clip for his song Calm.

An exhaustive day of filming saw some peculiar characters on William St, including a snorkeler, which led to some vehicles slowing down for a closer look.

Local film and theatre personality Patrick O'Halloran directed the filming with the support of assistant director and “lighting master” Dave Hargraves.

Raymond "The Sticks" Toms and Chris Sheedy also assisted with the filming.

Calm is a song about anxiety. Wild was filmed walking through the scenes with abstract characters (think snorklerler and person wearing a lion headdress) in the background, as well as dancers and a band.

The manic background intends to contrast with the warm, soft lighting of the chorus filmed in the Candelo Town Hall.
