We were commissioned by musician Jude Greenaway to create a video for his track 'She Goes', to be featured on his album 'Yellow Machines'. We were involved in all stages from concept to completion of the video, which was shot with our frequent collaborator James Medcraft.
The piece adds an organic quality to experimental animations of light, adding another dimension to the music, whilst drawing attention to the unseen beauty in the surrounding environment. The video was shot both in our studio using examples of local flora from the future Olympic Games site and nearby Hackney Marshes, and in the living natural environment of an Essex forest.
In post production, all the light bulbs used in the original footage required tracking and subsequent replacement, wire removal, stabilisation and some scripting to generate a flock of lights that would appear to be consciously navigating through the foliage.
The video was selected by visual culture publication File Magazine to be featured in their second bi-annual issue.
