David Knight - 14th Sept 2011

"After speaking with Aaron aka SBTRKT it was clear that he wanted to work within an area that would compliment his album artwork," says Tim Brown, who's returned to music videos with the clip for SBTRKT's Pharaohs, featuring Roses Gabor.

"I'm a big fan of photographic portrait compositions so I wanted to create a set up/camera rig that could cover Roses' performance from all angles. The eight-camera rig meant that we could cut around Roses in 45 degrees increments. It was a nod towards bullet time but in a much simpler lo fi style.

"Resetting the cameras proved difficult, and because we had full 360 degree coverage it meant that no one could stand in the studio while we were shooting. But overall it was a fun shoot, and the props really came together even with the very tight timeline we had to work within..."
