Holly Humberstone 'Overkill & Falling Asleep At The Wheel' by Raja Virdi

Promonews - 14th Aug 2020

Holly Humberstone is storming the music industry right now and has just had her USA television debut on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, with the live performance directed and DoP'd by Raja Virdi in his signature one shot style.

"I've been working with Holly across all of her videos and it's been such a lovely collaboration, especially being able to shoot in both of our hometowns," says Virdi. "She's an insane talent and she's so deserving of the success thus far. It really is a labour of love for everyone involved and the creative collaboration between everyone is fantastic.

Josh (Holly's manager and creative collaborator) rang me up and told me to get the crew in for a live performance that is going to hopefully be on a huge platform and shake things up massively. Eventually I find out that the huge platform is Jimmy Kimmel Live!, which is insane at this early stage of Hol's career - so it's very exciting for everyone involved.

"We got the crew in and we made this piece, which is really special to me. I wanted to make sure we hit all the marks of Holly's story visually and capturing the performance in the most honest way. I have to give a huge shout out to my crew (whom I couldn't do any of this without); my consistent operator Beau Pritchard-James for nailing a six minute oner on AR, time and time again, my gaffer Jordan for always having my back on these Holly videos and making sure our look is consistent, Lucas for always keeping it sharp, the best live video soundie (in my opinion) Anthony Leung for making this sound amazing with hiding microphones everywhere. And finally to my colourist Connor for always providing the most beautiful grade.

"I cannot wait to see what else we can muster up on this Holly project!"
