Dynamite French duo Jonas Euvremer and François Rousselet – aka Jonas&François – have never been ones to shy away from frenetic pop explosion, and this promo for the aptly named Electric Guest is no exception. The new Les Miserables not for you? Well then maybe this impressive stage-based song and dance with a 1920′s theme is more up your street.
A very impressive dancing performance by Electric Guest singer Asa Taccone is back up by an incredible dancing ensemble who’s slippery antics are sure to impress.
Jonas said: “The shoot took only one day but we worked out the choreography the week before with a company of choreographers named ‘I could never be a dancer’. We had no time to adjust a scene when it was done, and each day [of rehearsals] there were two scenes made. For the tone of the video, we wanted to define it in the 1929 American great depression, and put a Kodachrome color palette on it.”
This was Jonas&François last video with production company Soixan7e Quin5e before moving to Division for promos and Les Telecreateurs for ads in France and the US. They are still with Riff Raff Films in the UK.
