Art Departments Production Designer John Bramble was reunited this year with the acclaimed director and photographer Anton Corbijn.

It was twelve years ago that John last worked with Anton on the music video for Coldplay’s “Talk” the last single taken from the album X & Y.  Stylishly shot in black and white in the studio, with a B movie feel Coldplay land a retro 1950’s space ship on a alien planet, that is also home to a 30ft tall tin robot!

John was nominated for the Best Production Design/Art Direction award at that years MTV Music Video Awards, along with Art Departments Art Director Mark Scruton.

Black Label’s Dominic Freeman produced this short film for Agent Provocateur with Jules Fennell.  Anton was given the freedom to come up with the script and idea which is always nice and Set Decorator Derek Scriminger, who worked with John on Antons Coldplay video was hired to assist John along with Art Departments Romain Hemeray and Propmasters Simon Clifft and Nick Cosens.

Shooting over two days in June with two very scantily clad models at the former Wapping Hydraulic Power Station – a fine example of victorian industrial heritage, blessed with pure symmetry, and grand scale…the building that is!!!

The “Oops!” soundtrack/music – came from Massive Attack – “Pray for Rain” whom coincidentally John worked on director Walter Sterns uber music video “Angel” also by Massive Attack.
