Luke Bather - 2nd June 2017

Jack Lightfoot presents three slick, dazzling live videos for Kasabian as part of Vevo's Off The Record series.

Using an absolute mountain of lights, Lightfoot and his crew have created three very distinct looking performance videos that still all fall under a unified aesthetic. The addition of anamorphic lenses and a couple of steadicams turns this into a great, polished bit of live session work with a real music video flare.


"We aim to keep a similar approach for every artist across the series, but mix up the aesthetics to tailor the look and feel to each act. Here, I wanted to bring the feel of a large stage show to a smaller studio - lots of backlighting that we could control in terms of movement and colour to keep the energy high, and the looks across each track different. 

"We approached with 2 x Steadicams to get as much coverage as we could, coupled with anamorphic lenses to enhance the light flares, and create a more polished 'promo' feel."
