Emma K - 4th Sept 2018

In a poignant and powerful video for Sam Fender's track Dead Boys, director Vincent Haycock depicts a portrait of young men, each experiencing their own troubles and despair, each facing sinister, suicidal scenarios.

The combination of character, sometimes ferocious action and still life compositions produces a highly atmospheric and haunting visual, with Haycock's eye complimented by Rina Yang's camerawork. A brilliantly executed video that aims to raise awareness for the taboo subject of a very important subject.
