David Knight - 26th Sept 2017

Fred Rowson's video for Bree Runway is an all-too-believeable story of exploitation of young female talent in the pop industry, with a righteous side-order of revenge.

Bree becomes the subject of a photo session with a top photographer, who uses his position to assert increasing levels of control, which ratchets into sexual abuse. But he has messed with the wrong girl.

Fred Rowson does a very good job here in creating a dramatic situation that deals with a serious issue – and showing just how feasible this is – while retaining conventions of the pop video, including performance. 

"Ever since Bree and I shared a mutual love of Kanye West on the dance floor, I knew I wanted to make a music video for her," he says. "We dedicated this to perverts everywhere; your days are numbered."
