Jarryd James 'Give Me Something' by Jake Jelicich

Cat Velez - 21st July 2015

Following the video for his debut single Do You Remember, Australian artist Jarryd James has once again collaborated with talented director/DoP Jake Jelicich for Give Me Something. The result is a promo that's a continuation from the previous black and white piece that earned itself a mini-cult following.

Jarryd James says Give Me Something is about "wanting someone more than they want you. It's about the futility of trying to analyze it all." And he is present in the video in a ghost-like way, recalling distant memories but never really present in the scene, just observing the beautiful girl in white, roaming an abandoned house in the desert. 

JAKE JELICICH:

"It's a rebellion from black and white into bold filmic tones, yet it feels like both videos could exist together as two scenes from the same film. The clip plays with similar themes of memory and nostalgia - utilising zeitgeisty visual techniques referencing both the GIF culture of Tumblr and the cinematic legacy of California's deserts.

"Visually I took an old-meets-new approach, shooting through vintage glass onto a high end digital sensor. I'm also very particular on who I cast, I wanted our muse to feel unique like a rising star from the late 60's while remaining modern, to me Gisele Pletzer was perfect."
