David Knight - 7th Dec 2017

The first of three live sessions by Gavin James shot at the legendary Rivoli Ballroom in south east London, directed by Raja Virdi in his now-customary one-take style.

This one was lensed by live session veteran Brett Turnbull, executing Virdi's idea to the highest standard using vintage Mole Beam lights from Panalux, with intricate Steadicam movement by Josh Brooks.
