Jimmy Brown - 15th Nov 2013

Gareth Phillips creates a simple and bold look in his stripped-back promo for Circa Waves' Get Away, centred around an energetic performance from the Liverpool 4-piece.


"Cira waves approached me out of the blue to make two videos on the same day with a tinny budget. One of the tracks Get away is relentless and i wanted to continually move the camera in and out on tracks thinking that this would create a cinematic movement that would suit the energy of the track. 

"Sam Heasman created some striking lighting which enhanced a studio photographic look.

"Its a simple performance video but i enjoyed stripping it back and working with few elements".
