Conducta 'Only U' by Lewis Rose
Conducta goes from London to Paris to meet a girl, and ends up meeting another one, in Lewis Rose's breezily entertaining video for Only U.
It's a wonderful ad for Anglo-French relations, with a bittersweet ending that could be seen as a symbol of our ending partnership with one of our main partners in the EU, like a metro ticket disappearing into a machine...
"Conducta was keen to shoot in Paris from the off. We thought this would be fun, but were all conscious that the video didn't become a typical cheesy Paris love story. So we set out to find unusual locations that showed a non-tourtisy side of Paris. Our brilliant French location manager Jean Paul delivered in a big way and we got some great spots.
"Emma Dalesman (DOP) and I then looked at some film references, settling somewhere between La Haine and Before Sunrise. We wanted to capture a romantic vibe to some extent, given that it's a bubbly garage tune – we got lucky with a beautiful winter sunset on a car park rooftop for the final scene...
"But we made sure that we kept a bit of edge in the locations, the shooting style and the edit, as well as ending the video, with a bit of comedy to keep it entertaining... Hopefully it worked!"

Lewis Rose's video for Beardyman's Mountainside is a poignant tale of raver-love, a sort of pharmaceutically-inclined version of the Hurts' Lights video – and very funny indeed.
Okay, so Lewis Rose certainly isn't about mixing metaphors in this almost-NSFW red-light video for Hervé.
