Luke Bather - 6th June 2017

Director of the tremendous Channel 4 series Flowers, Will Sharpe turns his hand to music videos with a piece of delightfully dark DIY puppetry for Arthur In Colour, the band he plays in with his brother Arthur Sharpe. Will's brother (and composer of music for Flowers) Arthur Sharpe.

Beginning as a charming piece of miniature, handmade performance, it isn't long before things start to fall apart. Not only do we see uninvited guests to the performance really start to disrupt proceedings (ghosts and the devil in amongst them) but the puppeteers (various members of the band, including Arthur and Will) themselves start to enter the frame in unexpected ways.
