Having done the stills campaign for Tiffany Page's debut album, Lawrence Watson was asked to submit ideas for her next video. The result is a very photographic performance shot at the Four Aces in Palmdale - an hour out of LA, specifically created for film and stills shoots - and a video completely shot on Bolex and Super16mm. Just like in olden days - and it looks gorgeous.

"With a brief for an Americana flavour it only seemed natural to combine the look and feel of two of my favourite films - Paris, Texas and Badlands to create Tiffany's very own road trip," Lawrence explains. "It was also really exciting as I've also wanted to shoot something with that feel and it fitted perfectly".

"The challenge was to find the perfect location, and using some of our LA contacts the resounding response was the Four Aces, as the best spot with it's variety of classic Americana locations and desert surroundings," says Stuart Watson, Lawrence's producer and editor. "Starting at dawn to catch the light and trying to avoid the local snakes, the shoot went well with us even managing to get a free wet down from the local fire station. With everyone happy with the finished results, the promo went up on Youtube last week to a massive response - 75,000 hits in three days."

Meanwhile, Lawrence's new photographic exhibition, A Box of Prints, showcasing some of his iconic images of Paul Weller, has just opened at the Royal Albert Hall and runs until June 3.
