Public Service Broadcasting ft Andreya Casablanca 'Blue Heaven' by Alex Southam

Rob Ulitski - 6th Aug 2021

Alex Southam directs an intense dance promo for Public Service Broadcasting's Blue Heaven. 

The video features multidisciplinary artist Celine Fortenbacher, who hides under the guise of darkness, blending into a cold, dank industrial space before bursting out of the shadows and into choreographed dance.

Transforming into a confident, mesmerising performer in her imagination the video takes a turn for the fantastical, as the space is flooded with blue lights and strobes. This momentarily giving the character star quality under the watchful eye of a CCTV camera.

Alex Southam's direction draws you into the world of the Fortenbacher character, her transformation into a vibrant alter-ego - inspired by legendary German movie star Marlene Dietrich - and the conversation that ensues between the different parts of the personality, assisted by a superbly kinetic edit by Rich Woolway.
