Depeche Mode – Angel (2012)

Timothy Saccenti directed music video for Depeche Mode “Angel”.

Can you tell us a little bit about how the concept for the “Angel” video come about?

It’s rare that I do an in-studio type piece, most of my work is quite art directed and conceptual, so I was drawn to the idea of trying to translate that into this studio situation. I went into meet the band and was inspired by their energy in the room, they are amazing musicians and you feel it the moment you walk in studio. I actually felt this side of them hadn’t been shown very well, so that was my main concept, show this energy… not knowing where it would take me. After filming it, the amazing editor Dayn Williams and I dedicated a large chunk of our lives carving out the film. I think we accomplished our goal on that one. [Source]
