Ruthless Cuts: Dave Bullivant on his videos for George Ezra, Friendly Fires and Shame
Ruthless Cuts, the behind-the-scenes series produced by top London editing house Cut+Run, returns with a brand new episode in which Dave Bullivant - the director formerly known as BISON - talks about three videos he directed that came out towards the end of last year.
In a fascinating interview with Cut+Run London's very own Martin Macnamara, Bullivant reveals how his George Ezra video for Hold My Girl made it through an incident in a water tank that left Ezra seriously shaken - before pulling it together to carry on.
Then he talks about working with top actor and the band superfan Jeremy Irvine, and experimenting with infinite zoom techniques for his video for Friendly Fires' Heaven Let Me In. Finally Bullivant discusses the narrative and editing techniques that made his low budget slasher-horror for Shame's Dust On Trial so effective.
As previously in the long-running Ruthless Cuts series - which began back in 2015 - the audio-only discussion between Dave Bullivant and Martin Macnamara, with visuals provided by clips from the videos. This was made possible by the kind permission of the rights holders, and to Factory Sound, where the interview was recorded by Jack Hallett. And the piece was edited at Cut+Run by Matt Prickett, assisted by Rob McGuire & Helena Teixeira.
