Lily Allen

The Fear


We teamed up with Colonel Blimp to create Lily Allen’s colourful new music video for ‘The Fear’, directed by the visionary Nez.

The Fear is the first single from the Lily's second album It's Not Me, It's You.  It opens with Lily seated in a bright but lonely pastel coloured caravan in an empty park.  She exits the caravan and upon re-entering it turns into a dream world.

Gareth Brannan, Lead Flame, said: "I helped to make the house and the gardens Lily appears in feel bigger and brighter.  This was done in different scenes by adding more colour, presents, smoke and balloons.  The effects achieved a bigger, brighter fantasy world for Lily."
