Midnight Davis 'In The Mood For Love' by Richard Hunter
The ethereal soundscape of Midnight Davis's In The Mood For Love gets a hypnotic, and richly-photographed treatment by Richard Hunter - Tarantino meets David Lynch as following a bravura 90-second opening tracking shot, a girl dances in front of a man in a rubber mask, tied to a chair.

Richard Hunter: "With almost a zero budget I was able to make a video with some reasonably high production values. This success was due to the help of the amazing crew and the brilliant Bart Sienkiewicz who worked perfectly with [steadicam operator] Matteo Cosorich to get the opening shot in a handful of takes in the space of fifteen minutes.
