Chris Ullens' video for Wait For You is the result of a global collaboration of performers, all filming themselves interpreting Tom Walker's uplifting and emotional track through the medium of dance. All their videos were then edited together and enhanced with hand-drawn animations by Ullens and colleagues to amplify their dynamic, fluid movements.

Featuring performances from dancers around the world including India, Nigeria, Japan, South Korea, Belgium, Lebanon, France, Germany, the UK and the US, each dancer expresses the emotions of Wait For You to tell its story of healing and feeling free from your past in their own ways – visualizing the therapeutic powers of music and the cathartic expression it can provide. 

Although each dancer has filmed themselves separately, there’s a real sense of global unity and togetherness in the video as each dancer’s interpretation of the song comes together as one. A heart-warming sentiment considering the isolation brought on by the COVID-19 outbreak.
