Mont Jake has a very cool place. His cube-like apartment-cum-studio is where he relaxes, and also creates his own brand of funky jazz. And the lighting is fab too. It just happens to be outside, under a bridge.

Billy Boyd Cape's video for Come Closer has a very nice vibe and great charm - and also comes with a super-chilled, very bucolic epilogue.


"The idea for this was developed late last year during a number of coffees with the artist in East London. The song has huge energy and an epic quality, but what I found when I met Jakob was that he’s more of an introvert with a perfectionist attitude: He writes, sings, produces and plays most instruments on his tracks. My dilemma was how do I put all of these elements into one video.

"Academy really pulled out all the stops on this one - a huge collaborative effort. A night shoot, with an outdoor set and full DMX lighting… And we literally couldn’t have done it without this wild and wonderful 48-550mm anamorphic lens from the great guys at Panavision."
