David Knight - 5th May 2016

Previously a producer and EP, Zak Razvi is now working as a director – a career move that is surprisingly rare. But on the basis of this video for British singer Frances, it's clear that he's found his true calling.

The promo for Don't Worry About Me is the beautifully judged portrayal of an elderly West Indian couple at the time of serious illness. Without words it convincingly charts their relationship, conveying a lifetime of memories in the process. Ultimately its absolutely heart-rending stuff.

Razvi has been ably assisted by Steve Annis's intimate camerawork, and a sensitive edit by Tim Hardy, making a rare return to working in music videos. But this is really a very promising video directing debut...
