Ollie Wolf reworks a classic thriller trope - two strangers unwillingly handcuffed together - and adapts it into a romantic comedy, in this delightful video for Tom Walker.

Wolf and his Oscar-winning cinematographer Michael Paleodimos, shot this video over two days on location in Southend, with his leads, Aggy Adams and Kenny Fullwood, giving winning performances as the couple who wake up after a one-night stand finding themselves in an unwelcome and embarrassing predicament.

This is such a winning premise, the audience is soon deeply involved in the challenges that they have to encounter on their day together, which occasionally leads them to almost bump into Tom Walker - the UK's biggest breakout star in 2018, who started 2019 with a bang, with nominations for two Brit Awards, Best Newcomer and Best Single (for his international hit Leave A Light On).   

Meanwhile, Ollie Wolf has recently been commissioned by The Barbican and the British Council to create a short film for their 2019 programme entitled ‘Life Rewired’. Ollie’s film entitled “The Last Forever Woman” will be one of 12 that will be released each month during 2019 and focuses on the theme of age populations. 2019 is looking pretty exciting for both director and artist alike.

OLLIE WOLF:

Just You And I is such a sweet record but it needed something of a twist to offset it.

“Someone told me once that the one night stand was the easy bit and it was the awkward breakfast afterwards that they couldn’t handle. I think that must have been in the back of my mind when I wrote this treatment for Tom Walker.

"Just You And I is such a sweet record but it needed something of a twist to offset it. So, exploring a story about a couple who wake up handcuffed together, unable to remember anything about the night before felt like the perfect premise for a playful film. Luckily Tom agreed.”
