Jamie Lidell’s Another Day by Timothy Saccenti

Jamie Lidell’s Another Day by Timothy Saccenti

David Knight - 29th May 2008

Men in white suits are all the rage. There's the bouncing man in Dougal Wilson's Goldfrapp Happiness video, and Sebastien Tellier (and his body doubles) in Ace Norton's video for Eurovision entry Divine.

Men in white suits are all the rage. There's the bouncing man in Dougal Wilson's Goldfrapp Happiness video, and Sebastien Tellier (and his body doubles) in Ace Norton's video for Eurovision entry Divine. And then there's Jamie Lidell, the soul man who brings solace to girls who speak, hear and see no evil in Tim Saccenti's video for Another Day. "Having seen Jamie perform live on numerous occasions I was surprised that in his previous videos his compelling strengths as a performer, interacting with people, projecting his energy, had never come across," says Tim. "Knowing this we designed the ideas of the video to embrace and showcase these strengths as well as tell the story the track." After his videos for Battles and Animal Collective last year, this simply confirms that Tim, already with a huge reputation for his photography, weaves similar magic with the moving image and is destined for greatness. Shot in absolutely freezing conditions last winter in Brooklyn, Tim says, "It was very challenging and everyone was working around the clock to make it happen, and on a modest budget. The choreographer, Vangeline, did an amazing job of working out all of the work with the dancers under a huge amount of stress, and Jeff Shepard, our production designer made the lightboxes in that time. "The stylist Alice Bertay performed miracles by putting together outfits that should have been way out of our budget and the post effects team at Click 3X were miracle workers in post."
