Steve Mason 'A Lot Of Love' by Greg Davenport
In Greg Davenport's thoroughly enjoyable video for former Beta Band frontman Steve Mason's A Lot Of Love, we witness the familiar scenario of a British Cabinet minister in very hot water, with his world, and a lifetime's work to rise up the greasy pole about to come crashing down, at the hands of a fearsome, Paxman-esque TV interviewer.
If this covers similar ground to British political dramas and comedies from Yes Minister to The Thick Of It, Greg Davenport definitely puts his own spin on things, as the minister takes a course of action that would even leave Malcolm Tucker speechless....
Greg says: "It's one of my favourite ideas this - the story is of a much-maligned, unloved and aging politican under intense media pressure in the midst of a scandal... how will he react?"
Shot by Ben Fordesman, and with choreography from Holly Blakey – who also choreographed the recent Russ Chimes video – the video hugely benefits from a great performance from Tim Heath as the doomed politician, and Jeremy Drakes as his fearsome interrogator, drawing on the poignancy of Mason's soundtrack to brilliant effect.
