David Knight - 4th July 2017

Raja Virdi captures compelling new talent Freya Ridings in a one-shot live performance video, performing a cover of The Yeah Yeah Yeahs' wonderful Maps.

Shot in the Hackney Round Chapel, a carefully choreographed steadicam shot (executed by Matt Allsop) moves from wide to tight-shots of Freya to add more drama to an emotional peformance, and emphasise the full scale of a delightful venue.
