Nick Wilson 'Say It Now' by Bjorn Franklin & Johnny Marchetta

Rob Ulitski - 18th Dec 2019

A strained relationship is visualised through a dancer's interpretive movements in Bjorn Franklin and Johnny Marchetta's video for Nick Wilson's Say It Now. 

Inspired by the style and colour palettes of recent sci-fi films, the cinematic video is very simple in its concept, but boasts great performances from dancer Alice Oakley Jones and Wilson himself. 

The unspoken communication between the pair explores the idea that non-verbal communication is just as important as what we say - the words Wilson sings is reflected by the movements of Jones, who follows every beat of his story. 

DoP Johnny Marchetta's use of heavy haze and backlighting is an homage to Roger Deakins' work on Blade Runner 2049, and the tools that worked so well in that post-apocalyptic world are just as effective in this visual. 

BJORN FRANKLIN & JOHNNY MARCHETTA:

"The idea for Say It Now is a blend of some of our favourite films such as Blade Runner, Star Wars and Black Swan. We wanted to combine two worlds. Playing on emotions, movement and the lyrical concept of a strained relationship. This is portrayed in the form of a dancer's interpretation of Nick Wilson's thoughts."
