David Knight - 8th Feb 2012

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."
