David Knight - 7th Oct 2014

As a pioneer of the 'live music video' as a member of The Blind Club, director/DoP James Rhodes is very experienced at capturing the magic of the live performance. And he does that once again with this studio performance video of Morning Parade's Reality Dream, employing the lighting soft box as a moving part of the set. 

JAMES RHODES: "With Reality Dream I decided to keep things simple and focus on using camera movement to compliment the varying intensity of the song. We also built a tracking soft box which subtly adds to the dynamics of each frame."
