A few months ago, Thomas Dolby invited me to direct his first music video of the 21st century!
The track, entitled ‘The Toadlickers’, is about a group of scientists who live in the hills of Snowdonia, get high licking toads, get the munchies and come out at night to raid sweetshops.
Given the song’s banjo ‘n’ fiddle heavy roots Americana, some might see it as something of a radical departure for him, but I beg to differ! Infectious melodies…surreal humour…mad scientists…impeccable production…it’s classic Dolby!
Since Thomas has always had a penchant for pushing the envelope, it seemed only fitting to shoot the video with the latest cutting edge technology, which is why I chose Canon EOS 5D Mark IIs. I’ll be posting more about this soon. In the meantime…enjoy!
