Jimmy Brown - 7th Mar 2014

Duncan Roe depicts a world of loneliness in this highly watchable promo for Placebo's Too Many Friends. 

Focusing on a couple of headphone-wearing ladies, Duncan heavily contrasts their isolation with a happy young girl running free (sans cans) out in a country field...

DUNCAN ROE

"There were five minutes where I had to get over the fact that I am a massive Placebo fan… then I had to figure out how we were going to pull off this large-scale production in just 4 days. 

"The brief landed in my email on Friday, and we delivered the video on Monday. I still can’t get my head around how we pulled it off!

"A big thank you to all of the cast and crew for coming onto the project with such positivity, and for working so hard".
