David Knight - 23rd July 2012

Cal Gordon directs an action-packed video for Mark Knight's Nothing Matters - featuring Skin from Skunk Anansie on vocals - which features a man on the run, in a near-future totalitarian Britain on complete security lockdown.

Our hero, played by Oliver Chatham, manfully avoids the gasmask-wearing security forces in both countryside and city, in order to get back to his girl. But the Nothing Matters video comes with an unexpected final twist - and a quite controversial one at that, when the oppressive regime is revealed.

Cal Gordon and the team at Burning Reel made this on a tight budget back last winter in freezing January, shooting in the Brecon Beacons in gail-force winds, and in central London.
