David Knight - 23rd Mar 2016

New director Thomas Ralph makes his first venture into the world of promos with Scottish artist Turtle’s bruising new video Body. Portrayed through a fierce battle within an black void, the video explores the darker side of the human psyche.

“The idea grew from a want to visually experiment with light, movement and space," says Ralph. "Thus forming a story that exists as much in the character’s heads as it does under the lights of the city.”
