Rob Ulitski - 8th June 2020

Bianca Poletti directs an otherworldly step into a man's psyche, in the video for Graveyard Club's Dreamland. 

Haunted by the memories of a failed relationship, the man (played by Travis Grant) is transported to a neon-hued parallel world, joined by the girl of his dreams (Matilda Sakamoto).

Every frame of the visual is hypnotic and wistful, reminiscent of vaporwave aesthetics and vibrant daydreams. The locations are basically characters themselves, framing the video firmly in a make-believe land, clashing with the few moments of the real world we get to experience in the concept. 

Choreography is the other main element in Dreamland, a mix between contemporary and interpretive, beautifully choreographed by Sakamoto, who shows her skills in both creating and performing the dance on-screen.
