Jimmy Brown - 18th Feb 2014

Hugh O'Conor documents a tale of love woes in his intimate and charming promo for I Draw Slow's Valentine - taken from their forthcoming White Wave Chapel album - starring one Aiden Gillen. 


"We shot in a small, hidden gem of a bar in Dublin's inner city, the Hacienda, which you really have to buzz to get into, and on the surrounding streets.

"Our DP Cathal Watters used superspeed Zeiss lenses from Panavision on the RED Epic. I asked Aidan Gillen (Game of Thrones, The Wire) if he'd play the male lead, never thinking he'd actually say yes, but he liked the band and it all came together really fast... "
