Ocean Alley 'Deepest Darkness' by W.A.M. Bleakley

Rob Ulitski - 31st May 2022

Bill Bleakley directs a wonderfully eccentric promo for Australian band Ocean Alley. 

The video for Deepest Darkness depicts an apathetic protagonist, who suddenly starts to emit a dazzling light from her mouth. The narrative follows her to a warehouse party, where a group of characters with a similar glow are all partying, and accept her with open arms. 

The optimistic concept explores themes of acceptance and belonging, and of breaking through a feeling of being stuck, and perfectly visualises this journey with an atypical plot device. 

The clip stars Jillian Nguyen and was shot on the same lenses as the original Star Wars movie - Panavision C Series Anamorphics.
