Jimmy Brown - 7th Apr 2011

For the classic balladry of Rumer's dreamy Goodbye Girl, Chris Sweeney delivers a sensitive tale of loneliness from relationship woes - oscillating between the two partners going about their everyday lives.

"There were many things that I liked about this shoot," Chris explains. "One being that Dan Curwin had a walking stick for the whole shoot which I thought was rather chic. My other favourite thing was the lady who ran the amazing house we shot in. She would magically appear in whatever room we were shooting in. She started to make a full English breakfast while we were trying to shoot the breakfast scene, then decided to tidy her bedroom while we shot the bedroom scene, and during our last scene I was convinced she was going to lunge in to shot.

"A close second favourite was meeting the man who ran Super Laundrette on Essex Road who keeps a bottle of Lambrini down by the till and was drinking vodka tonics most of the time. Massive thank yous to the ace crew Andy Kelly, Clem Miller, Titus Penate, Alex Barber, Stuart Bentley, Quin Williams, Susan Hildebrandt, Beatrice Warren, Sophie North, James Bamford and Gary Brown - and to the first ladies of Music Video, Tamsin Glasson and Katie Griffiths."
