Rob Ulitski - 4th Mar 2021

Douglas Hart directs a mesmerising, retro-tastic black and white promo for The Modfather himelf, Paul Weller. 

Experimenting with gritty textures and inverted grayscale palettes, Hart creates a high-energy aesthetic for Weller's latest track, keeping him and the band front and centre throughout. 

It's purely performance based, allowing the artist to do what he does best, with no superfluous frills - and it's brilliant to see his output staying strong throughout lockdown.
