Cat Velez - 8th July 2015

British rock band Milk gets an affecting, cinematic treatment for their track No Interruptions. gaffer-turned-director Rik Burnell and co-director Joe Wheatley create piece in which feeling run high, showing the tail-end of a terrible scene.

The viewer catches the aftermath when a man walks out of the front door of someone's home with bloodied knuckles and a torrent of emotion flitting across his face. The suggestive imagery and raw emotion of the piece appeals to our curiosity as well as our expectation to know our subject's backstory, but the piece simply lets our imagination decide.

Burnell and Wheatley says that the song provided all the inspiration for their interpretation. "When we heard No Interruptions for the first time, the emotion behind the song was so evident. We could imagine it playing over a scene in a film where a character was experiencing a harrowing situation."
