David Knight - 23rd July 2013

The first in a series of five films to accompany the release of the new Goldfrapp album Tales Of Us, feature film editor Lisa Gunning makes her directing debut with this sensual, sexy video for Drew.

Alison Goldfrapp drifts through a country house in Wiltshire, sometimes accompanied by three naked people (two men and one woman) - and conjuring up a magical time, rendered in dreamy black and white.

It's a very assured debut by Lisa Gunning (editor of the movies Nowhere Boy, Seven Psychopaths and Salmon Fishing In The Yemen and more) - to accompany a song that sees Goldfrapp return to the lush cinematic sound of their first album.

Lisa Gunning:

"Tales of Us is a beautiful and intensely cinematic collection of songs so it seemed perfectly natural to make as many films as possible to compliment them.

“I've realised that writing and directing are a natural progression from my years in the cutting room. Being an editor has sharpened my instincts to capture what I need on the set and to focus on the essence of the story.

"Also, collaborating with so many brilliant people on these 5 films over the last six months has been inspiring.”
