Whilst the glitter settles on my latest work for Rimmel London, here's a blast form my music video past . . .
This is my 2011 Director's Cut of my very first commercial music video. It's a radical re-edit of my 2009 promo that finally brings it in line with how I originally wanted it - with a new structure, new grade, new shots and new sound effects.
Commissioned by Universal Records, "Another Dimension" (Timmy Vegas feat. Bad LayDee) was my first commercial music video for the production company DaveyInc. It was completed when I worked under the alias of FauxTales.
From the outset my idea was to capitalise on the track's sample of "Intergalactic", and create a girl power riposte to the original Beastie Boys video . . .
It involved me building from scratch a female-dominated fantasy world - but on a shoestring budget! It's now the video I always intended it to be: a frenetic mash-up of two staples of the B Movie genre - sci-fi robots and giant women - but with a tongue in cheek twist. And all the while looking like a late night cable movie unearthed on a well-worn VHS tape . . !
