David Knight - 2nd May 2015

The video follows a surreal, existential tale of cycles, an ouroborotic narrative about immortality.

We follow an older male, who kidnaps a young man. He removes his identity, and turns him into a young version of himself, allowing his identity in essence, to repeat it's lifespan. It's an odd, cinematic story, that deals loosely with an un-nerving DIY version of immortality.
 

THOMAS JAMES:

"I was obsessed with this idea for a long time - I really like the concept of turning someone into you, as you face your twilight years, so in essence you can live forever. Your presence continues. It's creepy. It was an awesome couple of days shooting - the location was knockout, and Bill Hoyland (the older male - he's been in Star Wars!) was a dream to work with. Jamie, who is the singer of the band was also great (the younger male). He had an awful lot of things done to his face."
