Philip Bloom (who previously worked with the band on Ascencion Day) made a video for Chim Chim Cheree while the band are on tour. So the band are not in it, but the video is a real nice piece of work. It was shot in Amarillo, Texas.
A familiar song covered in a beautiful haunting way by London band, Turin Brakes whom I worked with on the music video Ascension Day. vimeo.com/18956665
Since then, between stealing my lenses for his GH2, singer Olly Knights and I have been concocting a way to work together again on a video. My crazy schedule has made this difficult…we will soon though…in the meantime he sent me this track from their new EP “Xerox” which set off all sorts of ideas in my head. I couldn’t have the band in it as they were on tour in the UK with their THE OPTIMIST: Live tour so I threw ideas at Olly to see what stuck..I wanted to capture some haunting images and this came to mind…It may technically be a music video but this is real. These people are real. The situation they are in is real.
