In These Arms

by Andrew MacGregor


JP Cooper: “In These Arms” - 3 mins 33s

JP Cooper’s latest promo is car-crash TV in the best way possible, as the dreadlocked troubadour prepares to be T-boned by a falling vehicle. Director Calum Macdiarmid has more up his sleeve, however, than a spot of demolition derby.

Macdiarmid also serves up an effective relationship drama set almost exclusively in the backseat of a car. As the miles rack up, Cooper and his partner drift apart mere inches from one another.

Much is conveyed in the couple’s hand gestures and facial expressions, which turn from besotted to defeated in quietly devastating fashion. Action fans, however, will be jonesing for a good two car pile-up.
