Music video

The music video was directed by Chris Bran of Black Dog Films and filmed over two days at east London's 3 Mills Studios.[2] The video opens with a scene of Tunstall leaving a bar and walking through empty city streets, as broken pieces of her guitar fly by her. Occasionally while walking, her figure turns ghostly, and phases back in later scenes. The video concludes with Tunstall performing with her guitar after the pieces of it materialize in her hands.

Every frame of the music video required visual effects which were supervised by James Maclachlan of Prime Focus London. Post-production on the video lasted for fourteen days.[2] The music video premiere on the internet in October 2007.

Critical reception

"Saving My Face" received mixed reviews from music critics. Channel 4 called the song "a confident and old-fashioned pop rocker" and gave the song six stars out of ten.[3] The Manchester Evening News was less impressed, giving it just two out of five stars, and wrote that the song was "nothing to get excited about" even though it had "some cute arpeggios and a very singable chorus."[4] Digital Spy called "Saving My Face" a "dour affair", but praised its "delightful" lyrics and gave the song two stars out of five.[5]
