Jimmy Brown - 2nd Oct 2012

Shot carefully around the erratic English weather in London, Carly Cusson casts ordinary people (as opposed to actors) to capture real moments in her genuinely touching promo for Lemar's First Time.

"The imagery portrays dreams, hopes, and chasing your future or loving what is left of it" explains Carly. "I wanted all of the different visuals to literally make the audience smile.

"From babies to elderly people, all races and faces, all walks of life. I sought to capture real love on camera. People in love with each other, in love with life, or just in love with that moment. Positive and powerful."
