Cat Velez - 6th Mar 2015

Following his first video for I'm A Ruin, Markus Lundqvist's new Marina and the Diamonds' video for Forget has him shooting in the studio, playing with controlled light. 

It's an interplay of opposites: a circular stage split in two has Marina Diamandis singing alone on one side, and with her band on the other. Alternating between white and black attire, she is sometimes shrouded in darkness and other times cast under a white light. The simple set-up is driven by glamour close-up shots of Marina's performance, staring down the camera.
