How are we coping with the post-bank holiday blues? Surviving? We hope so! We thought we'd share something a little special today to ease us all back into the working week....
Above is a still from the new James music video for 'Moving On'. The video is the wonderful work of BAFTA-nominated animator, writer and director Ainslie Henderson and features a moving life story told through stop-motion and unravelling yellow yarn.
Of the project Henderson says "I'm on the phone to Tim [frontman] and he is describing how they came to write this song...some days later this conversation echoes around my mind while I'm listening to Moving On. I walk past a typical Scottish woollen knitwear shop. My eyes flit over a ball of wool in the window while the word 'unwinding' is sung. Pretty quickly I'm leaving a garbled, over-excited message on Tim's phone about the music video I have in my head."
Crafted with care and attention, the finished result is one that seriously tugs on the heart-strings, a beautiful watch.
