Mick Soiza combines a sense of theatre with almost abstract animation in his video for Australian singer-songwriter Jarryd James.
The Lighthouse And The Whaler 'Venice' by Jack Munsch
A young man and woman with separate lives are paralysed by their lack of love in Jack Munsch's intriguing and ultimately feelgood video for The Lighthouse And The Whaler's Venice.
"The band’s brief asked for a video based around the theme of love with a weird twist. And with lyrics like 'Death is cold, death is sure. Why don’t we fall in love', it’s a very clear and simple statement that I wanted to play with.
"I thought about a couple literally falling but then I thought it would be a cool slant to have the couple rising into love. I remember thinking it would be a fun challenge trying to create a love story with two horizontal people who don’t move or show emotion.
"That’s where Tom and Victoria (the actors) came in. The facial expressions needed to be extremely subtle, and practically non-existent, so I looked for two actors that would be able to draw you in with just their eyes. And then when it came to the slight changes I needed from them, they absolutely nailed it!
"The video was a lot of fun - I can’t thank the crew enough for their hard work on the shoot!”
