Miles Kane’s Come Closer by Dan Sully
Dan Sully's video for Miles Kane's Come Closer features Daisy Lowe at the eye of a tale of gangland crime, betrayal and violence.
Its tough, cool and stylish, superbly shot by David Johnson. And Miles almost looks as good as Daisy.
Dan Sully on making the video for Miles Kane's Come Closer
"The track was cool, sexy, cinematic... it reminded me of the kind of music Martin Scorsese loves and that was my jump-off point. I wanted to make a video that felt like it's content was stolen from a bigger film - fragments of a narrative. I created a film in my head and took moments from it to flesh out what we would see in the video. In the end, the narrative became based around a travelling musician (Miles) who ends up crossing paths with a dancer (Daisy) and the cat and mouse games that follow.
"Miles was great on the day, really getting into the role and having a lot of fun with it. His enthusiasm was infectious. The casting of Daisy Lowe was mainly down to Miles' friendship with her, but she was perfect for the role and a great sport, even when I asked her to climb a podium and perform a dead eyed dance in a showgirls outfit.
"I have to thank Sarah for doing a miracle job production-wise, David and Aubrey for making it look amazing, and Anna, Jim, Ameena, Lucas and Lucy for all doing cracking jobs (as did the whole crew). And special shout-out to Sam Brown - the one man second unit- who was vital to us picking up as much material as we did in the one day. Also, I want to thank Paul McKee for the great support, and Dan and David at Sony for believing in my vision for the video.
"It was a buzz to make exactly the kind of video I love making and lots of credit there has to go to the fantastic track."
