David Knight - 13th Oct 2014

For Saint Raymond's I Want You, Niall O'Brien dramatises a big moment that comes in nearly every young man's life with sensitivity, humour and one giant metaphor.

Shot in California, and beautifully photographed by Michael Ragen, the brilliant footage of bodies tumbling down a cliff of sand - including a very frustrated girl and, ultimately, Saint Raymond himself - was shot in the desert near Baker, about 50 miles from Death Valley, on the biggest dunes in the US. Which Niall made look even bigger.
