Under the name CheddaSK, Mike Maggiore, A14, created a music video for his single “Escaping a Bad Place.” The video was filmed by recent alum Ian MacClellan, A12, and features Eliza Earle, A12, as the “Dream Girl.” Elliott Engelmann, A12, and Emma Scudder, A14, also helped shoot the video.

The storyline follows CheddaSK as he escapes the boredom of a boardroom business meeting in exchange for a beautiful day outdoors and a reunion with his dream girl. Watch the video below, and for more music from Maggiore, download his songs on  soundcloud.
