Taking care of unmanageable hair.

This Dougal Wilson-directed short is one of three, with Werner Herzog and Sam Taylor-Wood directing the others, for Sky Arts and the English National Opera to help promote the ENO’s 2008/09 Sky Arts Season.

Pop video director Dougal Wilson chose Largo al Factotum (Here at your service to do or die) from The Barber Of Seville and remarked, “I’m used to working with artists such as Goldfrapp and Will Young, so working with ENO presented me with a really fresh challenge. Directing an opera short allowed me to apply modern artistic disciplines to a traditional source to hopefully create a really engaging piece of work.”

Bat for Lashes, “What’s A Girl To Do,” directed by Dougal Wilson.
