The Border Surrender’s If You Pass Me By by Nic Watkins and Tom Allan
The video for The Border Surrender's If You Pass Me By is a very well choreographed single tracking-shot, and like many of its kind before it, that alone gives it an intriguing quality that keeps you watching.
But Nic Watkins and Tom Allan's video has an extra ingredient: the cause of the mayhem on a East End street is unexplained, then revealed - and then comes the excellent, gobsmacking twist. It's a single-take that will make you double-take.
Tom Allan on making the video for Border Surrender's Pass Me By
"We were given the track back in December 2010 and instantly loved it. The concept came to us quickly - one shot, slow motion of a man running out of control, being chased by his future self to stop him from making the same mistake...the beginning of his ruin.
The idea was always to keep the situation somewhat ambiguous and to literally, as the song suggests, pass the moment by - just as the band pass us by.
"We spent five months slowly researching and planning the idea. We drove all over London, searching for a location, before finally stumbling across the perfect combination of strikingly filmic and low traffic volume, on Pennington St in Wapping.
"Most of the budget went on feeding everyone so all involved in the project worked for no fee and did an incredible job. We had a fantastic response to casting despite not being able to cover their expenses and everyone was amazing on the day. We were also very lucky on the availability of the Saxby twins who were a vital part of the story and who were nothing short of brilliant. A massive thank you to everyone involved - we couldn't have done it without you."
