Sam Hill - 24th Oct 2013

Chris Boyle seems a little fond of the end of the world.  Now we're not saying he's looking forward to it, but it has featured in his videos for Three Trapped Tigers and Emperor Yes.  Nevertheless, the end of days is back on the agenda, and a forlorn newsreader and her beligerent co-anchor are the target of this throroughly heartwarming video.

Seemingly spurned by a boisterous male newsreader, reporting on the end of days brings the female lead closer together with her colleague.  It also brings together Summer Camp couple in the guise of weather-person Elisabeth and doomsayer Jeremy.  Of course, this is all actioned with Chris Boyle's unique narrative voice and commendable post-production skill.  It looks fabulous and the narrative is carried off with humour and warmth.
