Jimmy Brown - 17th Jan 2011

For Carl Barat's So Long My Lover Tim Mattia turns in this introspective and touching promo for a 'journey through heartbreak' echoing the sentiment of the lyric.
"The theme of the song, and ultimately the video, was 'lost Love'" explains Mattia. "We shot in Dublin, having put out an ad asking people to come and talk about their experiences of lost love. It was an intense day, with people telling us their very personal stories, everything from death and betrayal to miscarriages.

"One old woman told us how she'd been left at a Thin Lizzy gig by her boyfriend 30 years ago, and she'd never seen him again. As she told us she completely broke down, and afterwards she grabbed hold of Carl and wouldn't let go of him, it was all pretty emotional for everyone there".
