Sam Hill - 8th July 2013

Michael Lawrence and his DoP Björn Knechtel turn on the red-light for this video for Alex Zhang Hungtai, aka Canadian producer Dirty Beaches, plunging Alex into a long, long night of girls, bars and endless cigarettes for I Dream Of Neon. 

Shot in hazy, staggered shots, the video was filmed in a variety of atmosphere locations in Hamburg and Berlin.  The shots and camera work are spot on and the drifting focus and fuzzy lighting add an interesting ambience.
