Camera Obscura 'Break It To You Gently' by Joseph Mann
A year or so after his beautiful yet heartbreakingly sad video for Keaton Henson's Small Hands (and fresh from the success of his acclaimed short film Sandy), comes a new video by Joseph Mann, which is certainly rather more lighthearted than the Keaton video (although it has its moments) and in its way just as brilliant.
Where Small Hands had puppet woodland creatures at the mercy of nature and man in a handmade forest, Joseph's video for veteran Scottish alt-pop outfit Camera Obscura's Break It To You Gently has an old long-forgotten shopping trolley, making his getaway from a garage lock-up for an exciting jaunt in the real Camden Town and Hampstead Heath...
Just how the enterprising trolley is transformed into a heroic character before our eyes is a marvel, and as with the Keaton vid, you'd have to single out the work of puppeteering team Will Harper and Jonny Sabbagh for special mention. The result is a British comedy charmer up there with the best. Mr Mann is going to go far...
