Luke Bather - 15th Nov 2016

There's a well-choreographed love triangle brewing in Tough Love's video by James Partridge.

Using minimal props and set dressing in a large outdoor space, Partridge tells a love triangle tale with a twist. Stripping everything down to the bare minimum and letting the action tell the story, a floating camera wraps around the trio as they vie for each other's attention - letting natural light texture the various setups. Clever cuts keep the fluidity of the video alive until the very end.
