Birdy 'Wild Horses' by Francis Wallis
Francis Wallis has directed this dreamy, fantastical underwater vision for Birdy's Wild Horses, which sees the singer transformed into an ethereal mermaid who encounters a deep sea diver.
It's a lovely performance video with gorgeously crafted costumes, fabulous underwater photography, and at its heart, there's this tragic tale of a love that wasn't meant to be...
"Birdy was adamant that she didn’t want this to feel like a fairytale or too Disneyesque aesthetically, a view that I mirrored.
"In terms of the shoot day itself I’d say it was one of my most challenging purely because of the time constraints and the slow moving nature of underwater shooting. Credit must go to Birdy who blew everyone away with her ease and ability underwater even when six metres down."
