The first chapter of Disclosure's Caracal saga (and sophomore album) begins proper after the recent teaser with our introduction to a woman who appears to have Sixth Sense powers - combine this with some Mexican voodoo in a land where it appears, as Zach de la Rocha once rapped, "who controls the past now controls the future" (oh, and some Orwell guy, too).
The Lawrence brothers say that every song on the album may get a video that connects all of them. In fact, "Holding On" is part one of four videos making up a short film from director Ryan Hope. Needless to say, I think all of us here at VS are intrigued with what lies ahead.
Disclosure will go wide-screen on new album Caracal, teaming with director Ryan Hope for an album trailer looks like a futuristic action-adventure-art film and is hopefully just a tease of what's to come...
A tricky video boasting lots of in-camera effects that take you from a bed to outerspace and beyond... all without ever leaving the video set.
Henry Schofield, director: "we want it to feel a bit tongue in cheek, a bit unexpected"... So went the conversation at our first meeting and 10 days later I'm trying to keep a straight face as Mr. Barlow and Mr. Owen stroll onto set with ginger permed wigs, with Howard moments later looking like an uber-tanned auditionee for Towie.
Besides their every-take-perfect professionalism and their great ideas... I gotta say, the guys are super down to earth and up for not taking it too seriously. Needless to say it was a brilliant experience working with them.
In one shot we're going from studio, to bed, to cheerleaders, to bathroom to kitchen...etc. Some furrowed brows and maybe a moment to two of "will this work" self doubt, but with a dream team of Katie Dolan as EP, Alicia Farren producing, Mikey Hollywood on production design, Ashley Wallen killer-chroeographer and Ben Todd keeping an all seeing eye on aesthetic, we felt like an A-Team all ready to Macgyver like put it together.
Making a video for director/musician Yoann Lemoine aka Woodkid sounds like way more pressure than most jobs. Director Ryan Hope handles it perfectly, however, delivering short films for Absolut that celebrate the artistic proces with Wookid, graphic novelist Rafael Grampa, designer Yiquing Yin, and digital artist Aaron Koblin.
Mr. Lynch's second music video has arrived, this time for Storm Queens summer hit 'Look Right Through'. Filmed at Cadogan Hotel, Knightsbridge (famous for Oscar Wildes arrest) Works as the perfect backdrop for this sexy, old school style vid. Laurie's successful combination of 50s fantasy and humour only adds to the impressive footwork.
A series of long, perfectly pitched tracking shots follow a woman through a factory until she feels the repercussions of something horrible that's happened to a loved one on the other side of the world.
