Killa Kela’s Everyday by Andrea Colomb and Georgi Banks-Davies

David Knight - 7th Apr 2010

A one-shot video set on a Soho thoroughfare with a winning performance and a substantial support cast - the new Killa Kela video for Everyday by Georgi Banks Davies and Andrea Colomb is an object lesson in a simple idea executed well. And making the most of Old Compton Street being pedestrianised.

That's not right is it <strong><em>Georgi Banks-Davies on making the video for Killa Kela's Everyday</em></strong> "We actually shot in the middle of the day - but it was a Sunday, so a bit quieter than usual. In fact the coffee boys of Old Compton St sat there sipping their coffee staring at us like they'd seen it all before twelve hours earlier!<br/> "There were only four takes - it's all one shot except the top bit - the first three resulted in falling over, headphones falling out, etc. This was the one, and only full one. "I'm amazed we did it for nothing to be honest. You usually take a hit somewhere with these things somewhere. Not this time. We borrowed a camera and cut at nights - a pass each. The edit effect came from me playing with the smooth cam FCP tool, and messing about with it a bit."
