Celeste 'I Can See The Change' by Sophie Jones
Sophie Jones remotely directs a 60's-style performance video for Celeste's I Can See The Change.
Beautifully introspective and personal, Celeste and her housemate Holly shot the entire thing in their living room, with Jones directing via zoom and DoP Joel Honeywell explaining all of the camera settings and lighting adjustments in a similar way.
The video has a universal charm to it: a nod towards old TV and film noir aesthetics, whilst managing to feel incredibly contemporary in the performance. The overexposed highlights and soft focus elevate the look, and add an authenticity to the visual.
"Sophie and I wanted to do a video that was an homage to film noir and this style of ’60s TV performances that we were fond of," says Celeste, about how the music video was developed. "Sophie used to run through all the clubs in London snapping pictures of everyone in the crowd. We’ve been friends since then and she tends to take the photos that capture my character more than most others.
"I came to her and said I had this visual idea where I wanted to sing the song in what I think I described as a black abyss - an empty space that could be interpreted in different ways."
