Lassamie Prasimay - 8th Aug 2018

James Arden’s video for Dead Naked Hippies’ Guillotine explores the singer's battle with mental health: shadows and blinding lights form symbolic imagery surrounding the band's performance, depicting the frontwoman's struggle against inner demons.

Filmed in an closed setting (just the director and the camera), Arden aimed to achieve a visual intimacy that would have been otherwise nigh impossible with a large crew.
