Cat Velez - 19th Mar 2015

Having made the transition from ad creative to director, Ollie Wolf has directed an impressive first promo with Caviar in London for American indie-rock band Other Lives' track Reconfiguration - an elegant, self-contained number, shot with smooth steadicam shots of immaculately executed fencing moves.

The clip is deceptively simple at first, yet as the fighters break away from the aggressive, attack-defend dynamic of swordfighting into the expansive and vulnerable space of dance movement, a larger span of expression emerges between them.

The sedative effect of the track paired with the visual interplay between light and dark, intimacy and aggression, makes for a subtle, mesmerising piece.
