David Knight - 11th Mar 2008

An impressed Brendan McNamee approached anti-folk star Emmy after a gig and offered to make her a video. Then he shot it on two rolls of recanned film - one was labelled wrong (it was 50 Daylight film, not 500T as labelled), and the other inexplicably fogged.

"So what I wanted to be a very simple in camera and edit turned into a rescue op," says Brendan. Well, he's done a highly effective salvage job. This is sweet and tender, with some handy effects work to boot.

Meanwhile Emmy will be charming the masses this week at SXSW, and in a UK artists showcase at the Bowery Ballroom in New York tonight. That's our gig of the day, live fans.
