LYR 'Lockdown' ft. Florence Pugh, Melt Yourself Down by Daniel Broadley

Rob Ulitski - 21st May 2020

Daniel Broadley explores how we communicate under lockdown in the documentary-style visual for Lockdown (whichis in aid of the charity Refuge). 

Collaborators Richard Walters and Patrick J Pearson- collectively known as LYR- developed the track from a poem by Simon Armitage, with narration from actress Florence Pugh and Pete Wareham of Melt Yourself Down.

The video features a cast of everyday characters, and celebrates our collective actions to help the country in its time of need. Families, couples and solo dwellers stand at their windows, holding sheets of paper with snippets of the poem. This mixed media aesthetic very much captures the zeitgeist of this period, which is already packed full of its own unique iconography and themes. 

A great, out-of-the-box concept for lockdown, this is a hugely successful video with an exciting mix of collaborators, which exists to help a very worthy cause.
