Be Someone (ft. Jake Bugg)

by Syd Briscoe


CamelPhat: “Be Someone (ft. Jake Bugg)” - 3 mins 33s

Two brothers take parallel paths in life in this literate promo for CamelPhat's latest single 'Be Someone' - featuring the vocal stylings of indie darling Jake Bugg. Following a death in the family, the pair go their separate ways and begin careers which are as similar as they are opposite: one as a rock star, the other as a charismatic preacher.

Shot in crisp black and white, the limited colour palette helps emphasise the distance between the once-close pair. One lives the high life while the other runs a cult, and rapid cuts between similar gestures and moments suggest they're more alike than we might expect. Directors The Sacred Egg's narrative flair is once again on show here, drawing the audience irresistibly into the story.
