I was contacted by Olly the lead singer of Years & Years to direct their latest video. The band and I worked together in coming up with this slightly dark and surreal concept. What the guys wanted was something that involved dancing, but had a narrative and this is what we came up with!
It was a great team effort and everyone went above and beyond what I expected. Being shot on a shoe string budget I have a lot of favours to repay now, but it was well worth it!
The intro is basically a flip-flop of the classic porn trope: Instead of the hunky poolboy who comes to unclog a drain, both with the pool and the previously demure housewife, we get a dorky boy left in care of the house (and pool) by a sexy housewife.
His imagination runs wild and he winds up rummaging through drawers and then his own drawers (if you catch my drift).
