Jimmy Brown - 5th Sept 2014

Josh Cole has crossed the globe to tell stories of high drama in his music videos for Rudimental and Chase & Status. But he settled on Wales as the setting for a gritty and sometimes harrowing seven and a half minute action thriller for Circles by I See Monstas. 

This emotional rollercoaster starts with an incarcerated man - played by Frederick Schmidt - looking back on happier times. But on his release from prison, consequences of his past misdemeanours lead him into despair, and deeper into chaos – and an increasingly vicious spiral of violence.

It's powerful and brutal, with a performance of great intensity by Schmidt - and more evidence that Josh Cole's destiny surely lies in making action drama for the big screen.
