Serkan Nihat has created this visually inventive homage to the B-Movie and film noir for The Family Monroe's song Bridges, inspired by Turkish versions of some Hollywood classics.

Regarding the various in-camera effects he employed in the video, Nihat explains: "The lyrics were quite poetic so rather than making the video visually literal I decided to approach it in a more abstract and visceral way using imagery and symbolism, and creating mood and emotion through specific colour choices.

"I myself had a very keen interest in Turkish versions of classic Hollywood films of the 70's and 80's, so I used that as my B-Movie reference. The use of double exposure, broken glass and step printing was to signify the erratic nature and fragility of the relationship in the song."
