Cat Velez - 31st July 2015

Shot entirely underwater, this unnerving one-take video for Highly Suspect's track Lydia was shot over the course of five minutes and doesn't have a single cut. Starring actress and world champion freediver Marina Kazankova the video sees her holding her breath during the entirety of the clip. 

Created with the intention of rolling a single take in one location, with the character facing a dire, life-or-death situation, the unbroken nature of the sequence enables the action on screen to come alive.
