Primally Challenging

Aug 8, 2015

We’ve just finished production of a new film; a music video for the song Beat Primal by Other Lives as part of their contest on Genero. You can watch it right now on Vimeo.

This video represents a lot of firsts for me; it’s the first music video I’ve ever directed and my first time working with a non-DSLR camera (In this case, the Sony PXW-FS7).

All in all, it was quite a stressful shoot, having to work around the weather and lots of different people. There was also a lot more I wanted to do with this project, especially some cool looking drone shots that had to be cancelled due to the awful weather. However, I’m quite proud of the final result and, no matter how trying it was, I still am glad I continued this project.

As always, I have gotten to work with some amazing people, people I am glad to call my friends. Specifically, Bryony, my co-director and partner; Rory, who got up at 4am just for us; Emily and Sam.

Beat Primal is available to watch now on Vimeo!
