David Knight - 3rd Sept 2014

Having directed the video for Fench-Soler's Magnetic last year, Luke Bellis then toured with the band, and has made a documentary about the making of their last album.

Now comes the video for the American release of Last Forever, which sees Luke exploiting his familiarity with the band – and creating the performance you could never capture on tour. With the camera continuously rotating in motion control, Luke has composited the various takes, so multiples of the bandmembers perform – and interact with themselves.   


"For the US release of Last Forever, I wanted to shoot a performance video with a twist where we’d just use one continuous spinning shot throughout the video but we’d see the band performing and interacting with duplicates of themselves. 

"After lots of planning and plotting, we went and shot the video in an empty studio where they shoot The X Factor. It was a fun day, all went to plan and we captured it all in about 30 takes.

"I also make a cameo in the video if you can spot it!"
