Aurora "Animal" (Tim Mattia, dir.)

Norwegian songstress Aurora psychically and metaphorically breaks free from her cage, erupting into a passionate performance which finds herself in a vibrant club.

Mattia was very complimentary of Aurora, saying “it was great to be invited to go inside Aurora’s head for a little bit of time while we worked on this project together. It was a hugely collaborative experience, and I think that can be seen on screen, as our ideas and aesthetics melded together to create the video.”

THE 1975 "A Change of Heart" (Tim Mattia, dir.)

This would have also been a fantastic video for Springsteen's "County Fair" or even "Tunnel Of Love," and let me assure you: That's a compliment (even if it exposes my heart as old, suburban, sentimental, etc, etc.)

"A Change Of Heart" has 1975 frontman Matty Healy as a sad, silent-film clown who finds love on magically epic night of love and dance at the traveling carnival.

Take That "These Days" (Henry Scholfield, dir.)

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. 

Joel Compass "Forgive Me" (Ben & Ross, dir.)

Ben Murray and Ross McDowell are back with the video for man-of-the-moment Joel Compass's Forgive Me, where once again they elevate a live performance with innovative staging and effects. And this time its all about the lighting.  

Following the Ben and Ross's performance-plus-projections video for Disclosure's F For You - and Ross's team-up with Sophie Muller on Katy B's Crying For No Reason promo - here the directing duo have developed a lighting schematic where they visualized how each light would react with the musicality of the track - with majestic results.

Ben & Ross, directors:

“The label had referenced our F For You promo for Disclosure and asked for something similar. They liked the way we had incorporated their branding (the face) and wanted the same for Joel.

"Joel's logo is all about a compass visual, based around some simple geometric shapes. We tried to incorporate this in the promo with not only a giant circle in which he performs, but also with our use of space and camera work within it.”
