When Andy asked us to direct the video for his new single - his first collaboration with the Grammy-nominated producer Dave Audé - we were thrilled. Caz, Andy and I started to sketch out ideas to do with our current shared passions - Cocteau, the birth of film, paint slashes, scribbles and dogs.
Weeks later we were on set in a London film studio watching a world we'd imagined come into being, including candelabra held up by living arms, a flamboyant cloak made out of tissue paper, and a bemused minature Schnauzer named Lily. Sadly, Lily the dog ended up on the cutting room floor, but Richard from the Erasure fan club now has the cloak (so check out the fan site if you'd like to own it! ) Meanwhile we all have the video, of which we're very proud.
