Dan Massie directs an intimate two-thousand capacity show for Taylor Swift's City Of Lovers album launch. 

Shot pre-lockdown, the video is shot in the beautiful L'Olympia venue in Paris, with Taylor performing to an excited crowd of competition winners flown in from around the world. 

In contrast with the shimmery pop promos Swift has become known for, this visual has dramatic lighting and shadows, creating a more cinematic and mysterious aesthetic. 

Captured with seven Alex Minis and some stunning anamorphic zoom lenses, the full concert film is now streaming on Disney+, having had it's network premiere on ABC.
