Jimmy Brown - 6th Nov 2012

Powered by a narrative that merges together two separate ideas that originally came from both the band and Idris, the actor - in a co-direction with acclaimed scriptwriter Dan Cadan and produced by @radical.media UK - appears on both sides of the camera to deliver a gripping snapshot of a man dealing with disability in his own idiosyncratic fashion.

"Talking to Idris and Dan about making a video that we're not in made it a lot more fun to think about. They went off and wrote the treatment after our ale-infused conversation in a pub in London, and what they directed, we are proud to present as: Lover of the Light."
