Rob Ulitski - 8th July 2021

Margot Bowman directs an steamy, nightclub-set showcase for new singer Charlotte Dos Santos. 

Both the video and track for Away From You centre on the idea of togetherness and unity, and Bowman interprets this into a glossy vision of movement and connection in an industrial setting.

DoP Aaron Reid builds upon the sensual aesthetic with coruscating lights and intimate camera angles, which is polished by Jason Wallis' beautiful grading work.

“I loved collaborating with Charlotte on this special project using beauty, time, and the premise that history is a construct to explore her unique world," says Margot Bowman. "It's such a powerful time to re-examine the past and build a better future out of what we find there.”
