Jacob Hopewell's video for D.A.N's Think About Me is a compelling performance piece, shot on black and white 16mm film. 

Hopewell emphasises the heavy contrast between light and dark, the visual motifs of dried roses and chains insinuating a subtle narrative in addition to its predominantly performance-based purpose.  

Through panning shots, silhouetted figures and use of a revolving platform, Hopewell takes a simple premise and turns it into a dynamic, well executed video.
