David Knight - 4th July 2012

Miles Bingham's delightful video for Silent Devices' Una starts out in familiarly gritty Britfilm territory with a homeless old man searching out rubbish bins and skips for food and other people's trash. But it becomes something else entirely - a scifi comedy fantasy - as his true mission becomes clear, to escape his earthly problems in spectacular fashion...

It's Miles Bingham's directing debut - he's more usually occupied as an ad creative at JWT in London - after he was put in touch with Silent Devices through mutual friends. Both Miles and the band are from Leicester, and another Leicester native Lee Veasey produced the video, which was shot over two weekends in Hackney Wick and Watford. Chris Green plays the inventive hermit - and Silent Devices also put in a cameo appearance.
