They say you should never work with children or animals. But defying cliché and convention, directing duo Us did both in their music video for Harry Styles’ latest single, ‘Kiwi’. The result is a cake-laden, puppy-filled food fight initiated by a Harry Styles mini-me. Played by Rogue One: A Star Wars Story’s Beau Gadsdon, all hell breaks loose at the hand of a single blue cupcake. With a portfolio of conceptually-led and stunningly shot work for clients that range from artists Labrinth and Wiley to Nike, The Sunday Times and IKEA, Chris Barrett and Luke Taylor are now known for their innovative approach and deft application of craft. Assembling a talented and trustworthy team, the duo’s dedication to detail saw them rigorously research classic war films and design individual cupcakes for characters, all the while channelling a ’60s aesthetic, to bring the pop star’s vision to life. Luke and Chris reveal how it all came together, the magic of spontaneity on set and what it’s like to work for a client with such a dedicated fan base.
