Just when you think you've dumped your girlfriend or boyfriend, it turns out they've dumped you. That's the principle behind Dylan Holmes Williams's video for Banfi's Never Really Cared, where several biters get well and truly bit, in increasingly imaginative episodes.

Banfi bandmembers are always on hand to witness these small catastrophes too - at least until a middle-aged astronaut decides to give Earth itself the big heave-ho. It's an epic finale to a thoroughly entertaining work.

Not quite sure about Dylan's account on the making of the astronaut's scenes though. Surely smoking in space isn't allowed...?

From the director


"DOP Lorenzo Levrini and I spent days trying to work out how we might pull off the ‘space’ effect in postproduction, but reluctantly agreed that it wasn’t possible and would have to be done in-camera. 

"Filming in space is not without its challenges, but one thing nobody tells you is that you can pretty much get away with available lighting."

"I had a play with the budget and realised that if we scrapped contingency we'd have just enough to get a micro-crew past the stratosphere. Production were unsure at first because of the high likelihood of overtime, but I think once we got there, everyone knew it was the right decision. 

"Filming in space is not without its challenges, but one thing nobody tells you is that you can pretty much get away with available lighting, as there's no clouds and you're a lot closer to the sun. Also, it turns out there’s a lot of myths about ‘not taking off your visor’ and ‘cigarettes not igniting without oxygen’ that don’t really apply as long as you have a crew that back you.

"Big shout out to Andrew at the European Space Agency for hooking us up with the rockets at the last minute!"
