Samm Henshaw 'Chicken Wings' by Jim Pilling
Director Jim Pilling is back with another episode from the Untidy Soul series for Samm Henshaw.
Following on from Still Broke and Grow - which was set two years before Still Broke - the video for latest single Chicken Wings takes place two years further back still, when Samm's character Sonny is working at his job in Henny's Wings, an American-style diner owned by a hot-headed boss, Henny - who is also played by Henshaw.
As with the previous instalments, the video has a distinctive look and feel that comes from the collaboration between the director and artist, and the 16mm cinematography by DoP Rik Burnell. It's the ideal framing for Pilling's oddball, slightly surreal comedy.
And Henshaw is great again as the loveable everyman Sonny. He's struggling to get his music heard, but suffering various indignities on the way, with apparently marginal control of his own fate - and irritated by the numerous loved-up couples coming to Henny's. But we also get a nod to where he is heading...
