Patrick Martin 'Both Of You' by Theo Watkins
Lovelorn Patrick Martin is having a very tough day in Theo Watkins's video for Both Of You.
Shot in the South-West of England, Patrick Martin plays a man in a dog mascot suit, handing out heart-shaped pepperoni pizza bites by the beach. It isn't long until things go wrong, when a passer-by knocks into him, and a destructive tween runs over his product with a scooter. This sets off a chain of events, each one a little worse than before...
Martin gives a winning performance as the broken-hearted all-American protagonist stuck in the back end of beyond in little Middle England, clinging onto hope - even though he's doomed. The 16mm film stock lends a happy-go-lucky nostalgic vibe to the project, and the zealous use of zooming helps cement the old-school feel.
"We shot on 16mm and took huge inspiration from 90's indie films, we loved the idea of positioning American heartthrob, Patrick Martin, as a lovable schmuck traipsing around south-west England, down on in his luck, with a heart that just won't stop aching. We've all been there."
