Ned Botwood subverts the idea of a dangerous walk home at night in this subtle but jubilant statement piece for Junodream.
Junodream 'Terrible Things That Could Happen' by Ned Botwood
Ned Botwood's excellent video for Junodream's Terrible Things... follows a young couple falling out of love on a long, boring road trip.
Cutting between the story and a deadpan band performance in a rehearsal space, Botwood draws the different elements together as it progresses: the tense, conversational lyrics of the song bleeds into the crumbling relationship, and a simmering argument that comes to a head on a dark country lane.
There's also some great imagery in the video to enjoy on, with road trip footage that appears shot over a long period through the West Country of England - a man on a flooded street, a seaside idyll startiingly shrouded in fog, countryside lit up with headlights. DoP Jon Muschamp does a commendable job making the long hot summer of 2018 look menacing.
