Cat Velez - 6th Jan 2016

Tom Clarkson's touching video for Seafret's Wildfire, is based on an experiment conducted in 1997 by psycologist Arthur Aron to see if strangers could fall in love by asking each other a series of progressively intimate questions.

In the video, single volunteers were paired up and their interaction was caught on camera, catching subtle facial expressions while reacting to questions like, "Do you have a secret hunch about how you will die?" or "If you could change anything about the way you were raised, what would it be?"

It's a simple formula resulting in quite a palpable display of vulnerability, nervousness and excitement... with an open ending leaving us wondering if the questions worked their magic.
