Long-term readers of this blog might remember the short film that my sons made about global warming. Well, l thought that you might like to see this latest offering from the pair. ‘The Day I Died’ is the music video for a new single from rising star Just Jack. It was shot in a single day in North and East London – the house interior used in the opening scenes is my friend’s, Tim and Debbie who have also featured on this blog (he is the painter who lives part of the time in Italy).
Anyway back to this little film. Apparently Elton John is a big fan of Just Jack and was instrumental in getting actor James Nesbitt to star in film. Even Jack himself has a small part playing one of the paramedics towards the close. It is a rather morbid scenario for the bubbly world of pop but perhaps that is its point of difference and will make this track a hit.
For any techies out there the film was shot on super 16mm using an Arriflex 416. Enjoy
