Jimmy Brown - 2nd Feb 2011

A trip to the seaside - unmistakably glamourous Southend - brings the memories flooding back for this particular lady in Jamie Thraves's evocative promo for Japanese Popstars' synth-popping Song For Lisa.

From Campbell Beaton and Tiernan Hanby: "We would like to thank the Nicolas family for all their hard work and putting up with such an intensive shoot - without their understanding and support none of this would have been possible. We'd also like to thank Adventure Island and Carl at Rushes. And finally Brendan at Beach casting for doing such a spectacular job with the actors".
