We talked with Corin about that production, his FX and horror influences, his amazing promos
for the likes of The Prodigy, Devlin, Rizzle Kicks, and his other upcoming projects.
Corin studied Special Effects at Wimbledon School of Art before making his award-winning stop-motion
short film Butterfly in 2003. This led into directing music videos, beginning with Keane’s ‘Somewhere Only We Know’
and ‘Bedshaped’ and continuing with films for a mix of mainstream acts including The Prodigy, Biffy Clyro,
Olly Murs, Paolo Nutini and The Rizzle Kicks as well as underground indies The Horrors, Dry The River,
The Horrible Crowes – and recently the 9 minute crime epic for Devlin and Ed Sheeran’s Watchtower,
all produced with Academy Films. His music videos have accrued over 150 million views and won
numerous awards around the world.
Corin was selected as a ‘Star Of Tomorrow’ in 2011 by Screen International. In 2012 he filmed an urban
legends based horror short ‘In The Back’ and directed a pair of teasers for his features FEST and Frogz Legz.
