Cat Velez - 28th Apr 2015

Documentary and music video director Danilo Parra has delivered this stylish video for Coastal Love, for up-and-coming British duo Honne. It's a lovely, surreal music video that involves smuggling, fashion models, and sea slugs.

Shot by Kate Arizmendi, its a crisply photographed, somewhat unconventional love story involving a strange, black-market transaction of the extraordinary sea-bottom-dwelling creature known as the nudibranch.


"Coastal Love was Inspired by a documentary Hamilton Morris and I worked on for Vice about the black market abalone trade in South Africa, mixed in with inspirations from the beautiful imagery at the recent NY fashion week that I documented for I pull a lot of my storytelling inspirations from the documentary projects that I work on."
