Boy George has premiered the brand new video for My God ahead of the release of the single on January 26. The song is written by Boy George and Youth and is the second single taken from his acclaimed new album, This Is What I Do.
The video for My God was filmed in and around George’s gothic pile in Hampstead Heath. The crew got some strange looks as they filmed a couple of the clips. With both George and Daniel Lismore in full make up, they did actually bring the rush hour traffic to a standstill whilst making their way up to the Heath!
Experimenting with different techniques, they pushed the studio lights aside and lit some of the scenes with an LED torch (borrowed from George’s brother, Kevin). They also experimented with a Speedlight (flash gun) to light another scene.
Says George: “We made the video at home in my living room and roped in my make-up artist Christine to play Faye Dunaway! It’s just a fun video and I’ve really got into the dressing up box!”
