Promonews - 3rd June 2013

Using four tracks from Zomby’s forthcoming With Love album, London-based director Ollie Evans delivers an emotional study of ‘still life’ in his promo for the UK electronic producer.

Filmed in slow-motion and graded in black and white, Ollie portrays a modern tale of love, friendship, family and violence – delivered in a series of tableau vivants – moving still pictures.

Ollie Evans: “Zomby’s music is so rich and full of emotion that it inspired me to want to create a music video that explored the human condition.

“I’ve been fascinated by the idea of creating a tableau vivant in slow motion for a while and this seemed a good opportunity to explore that combination with the circle of life concept.

“I find that there is something very contemplative and thought provoking about watching people stand still in emotive poses and I thought the contrast of that stillness would work in harmony with the depth of the music.”
