After his award-winning fake doc video for KT Tunstall last year, James Caddick has now made a real one for The Maccabees: about Chris, downhill racer extraordinaire. But he's not on skis.
Maccabees 'Feel To Follow' by James Caddick
James Caddick's last Maccabees video, for Can You Give It, documented men running and falling after cheese on a steep hill in Gloucestershire. This one, for Feel To Follow, has the population of an English village floating into the air. Again, although featuring a large cast of locals, it focusses on a single character. And like his previous one for the band, it's lovely: very English, lyrical, otherworldly - and looks marvellous.
"We shot this down in Worth Matravers in Dorset," James explains. "It was an idea I've wanted to do for a while, and the band gave me a lot of freedom. And the whole project has only been possible because 2AM put a fantastic amount of support behind the production. It was cold but we stayed somewhere really nice because Alice got us a great deal.
"I worked with a great bunch of people both the fellow filmmakers and the characters who got involved from the local area. And having spent a lot of time having people falling down hills in my videos I thought it would be a good idea to have a change and have people go upwards."
