This is the make-up for the music video set in Dublin that I did with Carl Barat last year. We filmed it in one of the oldest pubs in Dublin, The Brazen Head. It was a pretty extreme day as they got all the people to talk about their lost loves. It meant that we filmed a whole load of people talking about their experiences and some really sad, harrowing tales of losing loved ones. The people divulged some pretty personal stories, everything from death, hurt, cheating on a partner to miscarriages.
Carl seemed to be really sympathetic and genuinely moved by everybody’s story. It made me think that these kind of tales were exactly what he was trying to channel in this song. He was very appreciative of every person telling their individual tale.
The day itself flew by and it was great getting to work with a professional team from London. I hope to work with the gang in Agile Films again in the future as they seem to be doing loads of interesting projects.
