David Knight - 9th Jan 2015

Fred Scott - one half of the directing duo Fred & Nick – has gone solo in creating this fascinating promo for rising talent Benjamin Clementine's Nemesis. It fuses the Benjamin's charismatic performance with the story of a man facing his demons - and dealing with it in a surprising way.  

Dream logic applies as Fred combines the cinematic and theatrical within a dark space, and things unfold in an unpredictable fashion. The man, apparently trapped in a room, is confronted by a brick wall, and then confronts the complex relationship with the woman in his life - only resolved when the man takes a journey all the way back to Benjamin and his piano...
