"I wanted every song to have its own video or film to represent the album as a whole," explains Dido. "I love seeing how someone else might interpret a song that is so specific and personal to me. It's an experiment I've been really enjoying, watching the songs be turned on their heads by these beautiful emotional visual stories that are coming out of it."
Dido asked various film directors in specific countries around the world to create pieces based on their idea of what home means to them, using a chosen song from the album for inspiration. The resulting films have so far been made in Brazil, New Zealand, Thailand, England, Scotland, India, Portugal, France and the US.
Internationally renowned photographer and filmmaker Marcos Prado based Us 2 Little Gods on the award-winning feature documentary Estamira he made in 2006. This film tells the story of an elderly woman who has made her home in a waste site in Rio de Janeiro.
“Estamira is an extraordinary woman that lived and worked for twenty years at the Waste Disposal Site of Jardim Gramacho," says Marcos. " I wanted to show the amazing relationship of love, care and friendship Estamira and her friends shared in that odd place they called 'home'.”
Brazilian director Cristiana Miranda used The Day Before The Day to portray a day in the life of a young fisherman from a seaside village in Portugal.
“Fishermen leave their homes every day before dawn to travel to their other home: the sea," says Cristiana. "The home they leave behind is where they sleep and eat and take care of their families, the home they go to is the home they respect and admire. They cannot live without both.”
