Josef Salvat 'Paradise' by Ollie Wolf
Young director Ollie Wolf has followed up his previous collaboration with Australian pop singer Josef Salvat for Open Season with this video for his latest single Paradise.
Winding through the hallways of a luxurious hotel, we follow Josef through a day promoting his new single on a press junket. The near one-take video sees him living the pop star life, signing autographs, taking selfies with fans, getting into limousines, and just generally getting ushered around from room to room by his manager.
And when it all gets a bit too much, he makes a break for it... but ends up walking straight into a room where a muppet awaits him for an interview.
"Without wanting to sound like a nob we established meta tone with Josef’s last video. So it allowed us with “Paradise” to dive deeper into a narrative that explored the honest reality of the pop star lifestyle. Most of Paradise is based around stories Josef told me - including the puppet interview which was too good not to include. Then the seamless flow of the film came naturally from the idea of spending a day in his life. And let’s be honest - who doesn’t wanna have a crack at a one shot right."
