Biffy Clyro 'Re-arrange' by Oscar Sansom
Oscar Sansom strips things down to the bare essentials in this hazy, intimate analogue portrait of Biffy Clyro's Simon Neil.
Shot on 16mm film in and around the singer's home, the video is a soft-focus, close-up study of Simon in which Oscar gives the lyrics room to contextualise the images.
"Such a beautiful, intimate track from Biffy Clyro asked for a similarly intimate video. We actually shot the video in and around Simon Neil's home in Ayr, Scotland which helped to enhance the personal nature of his performance.
"We chose 16mm film because it's beautiful and slightly nostalgic aesthetic brings a quality to the video that would have been difficult if not impossible to achieve digitally. All the effects are in camera and we embraced the grain, flashes and imperfections of the film format. By placing visual interruptions in front of the lens and physical barriers between Simon and the camera we wanted to hint at the emotional struggles inherent in the lyrical content of the song.
"Similarly the push and pull of a female pair of hands on Simon's face references the complexity of the relationship within the song. There is a rare feeling of honest and open intimacy in the video communicated through the strikingly powerful performance from Simon."
