David Knight - 30th July 2012

In the video for West End star Siobhan Dillon's single Powerless by directing duo Blindeye, Siobhan plays the girlfriend of a small time thief - and owner of a very cool 1970s Rover - who brings her along on his biggest job. And her deep misgivings about his choice of profession leads to their relationship descending into violence, in this noirish story that flashes back and forward.

Siobhan - currently playing in the West End in the musical version of the movie Ghost - transforms from victim to femme fatale in the Powerless video - directed by Blindeye, who are Robin Mason and Jack Lightfoot, whose prolific output includes music videos, fashion promos, shooting live performances for the likes of The Vaccines and Spector - and the BAFTA-winning Our War: 10 Years In Afghanistan for the BBC.

This was shot in one day along the Essex coastline - one of the locations being the tidal road leading to Osea Island, which featured heavily in the Daniel Radcliffe film Woman in Black. As they reached the last shot, the Rover then broke down and had to be left for a few days, before being rescued.
