To reflect a song about feeling broken and lost, Andy Morgan places Majik singer Marcus Fowler in an extreme situation - he's tied up and left for dead by a fire in the wilderness.
Gavin James 'Greatest Hits' by Andy Morgan
Gavin James takes to the rollerskating rink, and revives some of iconic movie moments of the Eighties, in Andy Morgan's entertaining video for Greatest Hits.
James and Morgan have fun with a tongue-in-cheek approach to a sad love song, with his doomed rollerskating romance dotted with references to classic movies - Footloose, Back To The Future, Say Anything, to name a few - to James pulling off some unlikely moves in the rollerdisco with champ skater Tinuke O'Yediran, thanks to champ skater stand-in Zachary Martin.
And there's a nice bloopers reel during the credit sequence at the end showing how much fun they had making it.
"Gavin's brief was he wanted to skate his feelings, Footloose-style, in a roller rink, with the idea to put in lots of 80s references. Being a big fan of that era I figured if we’re going 80s then let's not hold back!
"I wanted to hinge the idea on a narrative which lead me to the opening which is a combination of The Goonies’ doubloon scene and Back To The Future. The rest of the video was seeing how many 80’s references we could fit into a single shooting day.
"It seemed like everyone on this shoot was a professional level skater, whereas Gavin had only been learning for just over a month! Our female lead Tinuke O'Yediran is a double Guinness world record holder for skating, Gavin’s double, Zachary Martin, is an award-winning member of Team GB, and Chris Dumount camera operated on skates which gave us some amazing dynamic moves.
"It was a hard shoot, but Gavin’s neverending enthusiasm and hilarious ideas for improv, as well as an immense effort from the entire crew held everything together."
