Rob Ulitski - 4th June 2020

A suffocating relationship leads to a powerful and poignant piece of choreography in Tobias Paul's video for Abbott. 

In a frenetic pre-amble to the visual, we see lead actor Sarah Ernst sprinting away from something, intercut with blink-and-you'll-miss-it iconography touching upon relationships, spirituality and fear. 

Suddenly, Ernst is collapsed in the middle of a desert, set against a backdrop of breathtaking sand dunes. A powerful piece of choreography follows, encapsulating the spirit of the track and interconnecting with the iconography from the introduction. 

DoP Felix Striegel confidently approaches the distinct styles of the project with an eye for detail and composition, contrasting the close-up frenzy of the intro with spacious and relaxed cinematography throughout the choreography.
