Lewis Capaldi, Forget Me

We went shot-for-shot on a remake of the iconic WHAM! vid for 'Club Tropicana' - it's not exactly what I imagine most people had on their bingo cards for 'Big Lewis Capaldi Comeback Vid', but hey, sometimes you gotta kill yourself precisely recreating a classic paean to hedonism for a melancholy song about second heartbreaks. It was really fun though - a week in San Antonio getting carsick and annoying our excellent local art department ("yes! that's almost it!!"). Hard to single out members of our incredible crew, but everyone went absolutely above and beyond to make the vid the best it could be - big shouts to Lewis for being up for anything and choosing such an odd idea... And am happy to report that I got heat stroke on the shoot and live in hope that any BTS will never see the light of day.
