As a big, big fan of the King it was amazing to make this music video for Sony & Elvis Presley Estate's new Elvis album 'Viva Elvis'. Suspicious Minds is the title track from the album and one of my favourites. The brief was to make Elvis the new big star who is performing to us now. Footage was chosen from his 68 comeback special because of how great he looked and his brilliant performance. Elvis was mostly kept in silhouette as he didn't actually sing Suspicious Minds in the special, instead the editor Nick Hristou chose and synced up shots where his body language made him look like he was performing the track. Thanks to Passion Pictures and the fantastic crew for making this happen.
