Raja Virdi is back with his signature one-take live sessions, this time directing and lensing for Lily Moore's latest single I Will Never Be.

It's a stripped-back acoustic performance with Lily at the forefront, giving an electric performance with great Steadicam work by Charlie Rizek. 



"We shot three live sessions for Lily and they are all some of my favourites that I've had the pleasure of directing and shooting. It was a big task for all involved, but I've got to give a huge shout out to my camera assistant Lucas, my gaffer Amir & Steadicam op Charlie. They all worked closely with me in order to get this to look and feel the way I wanted. Also wanted to give massive thanks to Connor at Electric Theatre Collective for nailing the colour, to the point of it being even better than I saw it in my head.

"The shoot day was was the hottest day in London this year, so props to everyone involved for keeping up the hard work when it felt like we were all melting - especially Lily for smashing the performance whilst recording audio live."
