Arlo Parks 'Black Dog (Live for Spotify)' by Jack Lightfoot
Arlo Parks takes centre stage in Jack Lightfoot's understated live video for Black Dog, shot in collaboration with Spotify.
Based inside the Hackney Round Chapel, the laidback promo is as minimalist as they come - only Parks and a guitarist inhabit the space - and puts the entire focus on the music and the experience.
Relaxed camera movement perfectly complements the breezy performance, with an overarching feelgood vibe that jumps from every frame.
"I'd been really keen to work with Arlo since a friend introduced me to her music earlier in the year, so I was so excited when Spotify offered me the opportunity," says Lightfoot. "This is one track from a three track set. We based ourselves in the stunning Hackney Round Chapel, and really wanted to showcase as much of the venue as possible, so favoured a lot of sweeping wides.
"The weather was on our side too - half the light coming through the window is film lighting, but the other half is natural sun beams. I thought 'that's lucky', but Mike [O'Connor, DOP] insisted he had strategically planned this!"
