Australian solo rock artist Essie, had a location and a rough concept in mind for the video of her single release ‘Someone’. The canal-side studio apartment had a gritty vibe to it and gave us use of the canal itself for a sequence in the video. We then came in and fleshed her ideas into a full narrative that would be achievable to shoot in one evening.
With the preparation done in pre-production in terms of shot lists and storyboards, it was a case of executing our shot list on location and adding distinctive markers to give the video a unique feel. We used blue lighting heavily from outside of the window for the interior sequences to give a feeling of an overpowering moonlight. We also shot handheld for almost the whole video, creating a voyeuristic feel to the sequences.
