Vaughan Arnell

Legendary British director Vaughan Arnell may still be best known for his partnership with Anthea Benton but he's also had a highly distinguished solo career. His style is characterised by photographic storytelling and striking, contemporary visuals.

Well-versed in directing performance, Arnell coaxes lovely results from celebrities and non-actors alike. He's led both the ad and promo world in visual terms since the 80s... and shows no signs of stopping.

Sam Smith & Normani
"Dancing With A Stranger"
Vaughan Arnell has delivered a classy promo for Sam Smith's duet with Normani. As he stands in the stark space of a classic modernist house reflecting on the object of his desire, now lost to him, Smith is dispassionately caressed by strangers; the ghosts of others he has since danced with instead. The focus then switches to the very beautiful Normani, who is in the same situation.
