Sam Pilling does a great job of translating the lazy, half-tempo dubstep of Distance's Falling with this slow-mo/vari-speed breakdance promo with a brilliant performance from Stephan Milhache.

"I really liked the hypnotic quality of the track and as soon as I listened to it, I could just see this mesmerizing image of a dancer moving in slow motion" explains Pilling.

"It was my first time shooting with a Phantom and there were several ?difficulties on the day - mainly that the weather was not on our side, so we didn't have as much natural light to help us out as we had hoped. However, Dave Miller our DOP did a sterling job and after spending the morning stringing up the lights to the main roof (to mimic sunlight) we were away...

"Stefan, our dancer simply nailed the moves, again and again and again... It ?was a pleasure to watch him fly through the air all day. In fact it seemed he never got tired

"Everyone worked really hard, with a special thank you to Denny @ Rushes for ?doing such a nice job on the grade".
