Sons Of Raphael 'Siren Music' by Loral Raphael
Brothers Loral and Ronnel Raphael - aka Sons of Raphael - literally represent the lyrics of their song Siren Music through choreography in the completely analogue video, directed by Loral.
Collaborating with cinematographer Manuel Claro (Melancholia, The House That Jack Built) for the second time, this was shot on film in a single take at a high frame rate, resulting in the dreamlike, rather abstract quality of the dance performance by the Raphael brothers - both sporting Mr Punch-like prosthetics - who rise and fall, and are finally slumped on the floor, in a mirrored dance studio.
The film footage was processed, then graded on the negative. "Each grade alters the negative forever, so we had to put a lot of trust on the process itself,” says producer Manoela Chiabai. "You won’t achieve this grade in any digital colour grading, no matter how great your grader is."
“In terms of aesthetic and technicality, I always shoot on film, but this time I wanted to keep the whole process 100% analogue. No editing, no digital grading or any aftereffects. When we make music, we record everything on tape, and we mix everything on a desk with no computers involved. It only makes sense to do the same when making a video.“
