M83 'Moonchild' by Richard Paris Wilson
Unsigned director Richard Paris Wilson's unofficial video for M83's Moonchild – it was a finalist in a competition on Genero.tv, and also nominated for Genero's Video of the Year 2013 – turns expectations on its head, when an astronaut comes to earth and strikes up a friendship with a young girl he meets on the beach. When they are endangered by a extravagant trio of evildoers, the purpose of the space traveller's visit becomes clear.
With its excellent use of the Kent seaside location, and larger than life characters, this is an impressively cinematic video - crewed in large part by teenagers from Richard's summer workshop class.
Richard Paris Wilson: "I made the video with a group of 14/15 year olds from a summer media workshop I run in South London. We had them helping on everything - planning the shoot, camera assisting, art direction, etc. Kids are the greatest crew members you could ever ask for - their endlessly creative and incredibly enthusiastic.
"We also had a couple of very talented professionals - including DOP James Westbrook and editor Riccardo Servini - to ensure the end result was something we could all be proud of. It was a fantastic experience, and proof that with lots of creativity and good planning you can overcome a tiny budget."
