Every morning a man wearing a black suit and bowler hat, leaves his suburban home.
On his way to work, he passes a fancy-dress shop, where he is invited by a shopkeeper to try on an outfit. He leaves the shop through a magic door at the back and enters another world, where he has an adventure, before the shopkeeper reappears to lead him back...
This is one of those jolly adventures...
Directed by Luke Losey. The Clock is the first single release from 8:58 (Paul Hartnoll), until recently one half of Orbital, staring Cillian Murphy as the Generic man.
This short film / music video was shot edited & delivered in under week. Locations in central and east London. Fancy dress shop is 'Only fools and Peacocks' on Kingsland road. The approach to this film is deliberately Low Fi and Guerrilla using a maximum of two takes, working to a very simple narrative that we improvised as we went along. We had a lot of fun making this..
Cameras: Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera (raw), and Blackmagic Production Camera 4K (raw).
Shot on location at Robin Hood Gardens Estate (London), The Barbican (London), Only Fools and Peacocks (London), and The Shed (London).
