The Dream Syndicate 'Damian' by Ben Mahon

Rob Ulitski - 26th May 2022

Ben Mahon directs an intimate portrait for Paisley Underground stalwarts The Dream Syndicate - a day in the life of Damian.

Played by Nick Bartlett in the video, Damian is an enigmatic drifter, constantly on the move. His car is his home - doubling as bedroom, bathroom and church - whatever that car happens to be. He is battling loneliness and wrestling with an off-screen relationship, as he drives on.

The easy pacing and drawn-out shots reflect the thoughtful nature of the piece, whilst Bartlett truly embodies the role, with a complex yet believable performance.
