Luke Bather - 20th Dec 2016

Bob Gallagher combines two very different screen classics in this charming video for Saint Sister.

Taking the Wizard of Oz story and throwing it into the mix with Blind Date turns out to be a recipe for a beautifully understated romance narrative - who'd have thought it? Mixing aspect ratios to switch between the cinema and the TV pastiches and the brave stylistic choice of using sepia tones really pays off here, giving the video an authentically retro feel, yet not feeling dated (no pun intended).
