OK, so this one's self-indulgent. In 2015, I applied for a job at an agency called Creative Spark. The website said “video applications only,” which I took as a challenge. In reality, it was because the studio manager wanted to weed out the weirdos before she met them. Too late. I went all out. I rewrote a Dylan song, found my most Zimmerman-sounding mate, re-recorded the track at home, then shot the video out the back of The Whiskey Jar in Manchester. Spent a LOT of time scribbling away with sharpie pens. Got the gig, mind...
