Lisa Hannigan 'Fall' by Harvey Pearson
A forest setting and Supple Nam's choreography provide the twin pillars of Harvey Pearson's video for singer-songwriter Lisa Hannigan. Shot in Bourne Woods in Surrey, and nicely photographed by DoP Charlie Goodger, the focus never shifts from the impressive Hannigan and her performance of the heartfelt Fall, as her physical movement also reflects the struggles at the heart of the song.
"Through this video we wanted to explore the idea of overcoming something, whether that was something physical or mental. I decided that a forest was the perfect location to denote this idea of a ‘crowded mind’. Throughout the video we see Lisa’s abstract movements, which is something which we worked hard on with Supple [Nam], to try and further the concept of fighting against your own mind - the idea of her being possessed by something.
"The whole video is a progression, something moving in, attacking, and then Lisa slowly overcoming it and it retreating. We tried to show that through every aspect of the video - the dance, the cinematography and of course, the edit - it's all about that progression."
