Project info

Shot in Blackpool and serviced by our Manchester branch, Panalux worked with Director Tim Burton, DoP Tom Townend and Gaffer Adam Harris on The Killers promo “Here With Me”.

Produced by Hannah Cooper at Th2ng, this is the second video Burton has directed for The Killers. In a note on the band's website Burton explains the inspiration behind the clip: "The first time I saw The Killers perform live was in Blackpool, UK shortly after completing work on our first collaboration, the music video for Bones," he wrote. "When I heard the song Here With Me I remembered seeing a wax figure of Winona in Louis Tussaud’s Waxworks in Blackpool. The concept of the video is inspired by the 1935 film Mad Love, starring Peter Lorre, as well as the works of Mario Bava."

The dark and stylish promo features Wynona Ryder as a fairground performer and Craig Roberts as the obsessive fan who falls in love with a wax model that looks like her.
