Jamie xx 'Gosh (Behind The Scenes)' by Kim Chapiron

It's difficult to put the immense scale of Romain Gavras' stellar video for Jamie xx's Gosh into words, which is probably why this Behind the Scenes documentary by Kim Chapiron is almost entirely void of any dialogue that explicitly details the production.

Never one for explaining himself too literally, this doc doesn't follow Gavras as he explains shot by shot his intentions, or how he wants the video to look. For more illumination, you're better off reading Dazed's interview with the director. Simply, you, through the eyes of Kim Chapiron, wander around this gigantic location and watch on in awe at the sheer scale of this production. 

When this video first appeared (and then promptly disappeared for a while) the claims of 'No CGI or 3D effects!' were met with a resounding "How?!". And whilst the game isn't given away here entirely, it's an eye-opening look at what went on during the shoot.

It's a hypnotic piece of documentary (with one hilarious moment about halfway through) entirely worthy of a transcendent piece of music video art.
