David Knight - 5th Dec 2008

James Copeman puts the charm of his Super 8-shot videos for Noah, Laura Marling and Emiliana into a mainstream Gallic pop setting for French artist Emma Daumas.

Don't know much about Emma, but she's being unusually brave wearing spectacles last seen in Abigail's Party.

J'suis Conne also features a donkey and the weirdly emotional sight and sound of a steel drum. It clearly wants to be in the Caribbean, but they opted for Black Island Studios in delightful Park Royal instead.
