Lassamie Prasimay - 1st Apr 2020

Taisia Deeva has directed a very stylish, choreography and VFX-based video for SAINt JHN, depicting an allegory of some key experiences that individuals go through whilst being a part of society.

A lone figure is suspended over a large structure, floating as if frozen in time, before dropping into the building below. He lands in a white spotlight to the first beat of the track and realises he is not alone, as he sees glowing eyes staring at him from the darkness. Before long he is surrounded by dancers in black clothing and intricate geometric makeup, as they confront him through movement. The spotlight then becomes a ring for their dance battle, surveyed by an ominous masked figure who has control over the dancers.

After their dance the protagonist remains the last one standing, undefeated against the odds - until he is confronted by a group of female dancers with the same intimidating aura...

The stunning visual effects, made by VFX Headquarters, are key to creating the dystopian futuristic set up, as well as the striking use of lights and camera movement, both controlled by the rhythm of the track.
