Jimmy Brown - 21st May 2013

Currently enjoying an exclusive on the Nowness video channel is Vincent Haycock's monochrome beauty for London composer/producer Raffertie's stirring Build Me Up.

Shot in the South Central district of Los Angeles, Vince has documented the lives of the three Mays brothers, with their family and friends as co-stars, with outstanding cinematography by Evan Prosofsky. 

Vince told Nowness: "One of the aspects I liked most was the idea of turning the breaks in the song’s structure into natural pauses for the voice-overs, a musical element was still required here though so I composed some extra music derived from the choral backing vocals."
