Seb directs his first promo for James Blake
James Blake’s cover of Joni Mitchell’s classic A Case Of You gets an intense essay on a relationship – and the many different shades of the female protagonist – starring the luminous and compelling Rebecca Hall.
“There’s a purity to James’ cover, so I wanted to do something simple and stripped back; one room, one actress and effectively one shot. It's basically a random collection of memories that are joined together to create a single experience. I wanted to be able to see the lighting and emotional transitions happen in-camera. In many ways it’s a mixture of theatre and cinema, so Rebecca was the perfect choice and I knew that she would be able to create a complex and compelling character."
