James Marcus Haney's video for Mumford & Sons is a deeply romantic portrait of two dancers, a character study and riveting dance performance disguised as a home movie.
Coldplay 'Birds' by James Marcus Haney
Marcus Haney has been building an impressive reputation as a photographer and filmmaker - the latter mainly for the acclaimed No Cameras Allowed, and for music videos such as Bear's Den's Elysium. Now here's his video for Coldplay's Birds, documenting the band's visit to Leonard Knight's Salvation Mountain in the Colorado Desert, on utterly groovy Super 8mm film.
Twirling imagery, kaleidoscopic motifs, grainy footage and fireworks contribute to a sense of nostalgia, in an airy video full with colour, texture and movement.
