Mist 'Savage' by KC Locke
KC Locke pulls out all the stops for Mist in this high octane video for Savage.
At a gritty nondescript airfield, a flurry of drifting cars, quad bikes and motorbikes roar towards the camera, while Mist hangs out of the passenger side window and performs. These are the cinematic-style shots the director is known for, and there are dozens of such moments packed within the short visual.
Working with DP Sam Meyer, Locke deployed various cinematography techniques including new tech FPV race drones, Russian arm and 4x4 buggy cams to capture the high-stakes energy of the concept. It's another landmark piece in the director's phenomenal breakthrough year.
"With the song being only 2min 30 seconds I wanted the visual to match the pace of the song while also revealing new and exciting elements as the video unfolds.
"The edit was turned around within 12 hours of the shoot. Working closely with my editor Jamil Shaukat the aim was to keep the energy high while also allowing space for Mist’s darish performances. Jamil made the edit perfect with his love for the craft and music combined."
