George Cosby 'Real Love' by Vaughan Arnell

Rob Ulitski - 25th Mar 2021

Vaughan Arnell directs an introspective video for George Cosby's Real Love. 

Set within a darkened studio space, Cosby is sat in his car as a projector beams snapshots of love stories onto a screen ahead, reminiscent of his own mini drive-in theatre. 

It's a simple concept executed to perfection, intertwining narrative and performance with a touch of Arnell's magic thrown in for good measure. 

VAUGHAN ARNELL: 

I instantly fell in love with the sound of George's voice.

"I couldn’t believe my ears the first time played Real Love. It was like listening to the love child of Ian Curtis and Elvis. I instantly fell in love with the sound of George's voice.

"Writing the treatment gave me the same butterflies I had on my very first video. I constantly phoned Marisa ( The mighty Marisa Garner ) everyday asking 'have we heard anything'.

"When it was awarded we were so fucking excited. I tried to capture the cinematic quality of George's voice framed in a simple performance. George is an artist I would love to work with and develop a relationship with as Real Love only felt like the first date."
