Rob Ulitski - 9th July 2020

Brock Neal Roberts directs a stripped-back live visual for Berwyn's Glory, recorded especially for Later... With Jools Holland on BBC 2. 

Shot at his Mum’s house in Wolverhampton, the performance also features a final verse written as a reaction to recent events.

Playing the keyboard in the corner with minimal lighting and next to no art direction, the focus is completely on Berwyn and his craft, as his Mum watches over him proudly. 

Intercut with profile shots of friends and family, the poignant lyrics hit hard, and this is the perfect example of a video that channels true emotion without any tricks or gags.
