videoTwo Another 'One I Need' by Harry Deadman
Harry Deadman directs a trip into an otherworldly dimension in his splendid promo for funk-pop duo Two Another. Riding the elevator up to the 51st floor, we see vocalist Elliot start to picture himself in a variety of weird and wonderful situations with the other people in the lift, including Angus, his bandmate."Angus and Elliot hit me up on Instagram last August and said they had a new single and were keen to collaborate on a video," explains Deadman. "They already had a solid idea of the kind of world they wanted to create for the video - dreamy, otherworldly and soaked in colour. Which is exactly what I love to hear!"The resulting video was shot against greenscreen with a flurry of visual effects to create the abstract, uncanny environments we see the artists in. Deadman worked with his Brisbane-based friend and regular collaborator Liam Blenkinsop on the VFX builds for the video, taking their creative collaboration to a new level."We met at uni and have been working together on various projects since then," says Deadman. "We normally do five to ten shots per video so I kind of underestimated how long this would all take. I think there was something like 185 shots to get through!" The time and effort has all paid off handsomely here as the slickness of the production design and VFX aligns with the energy of the performances from Two Another and two accompanying dancers. It acts as a wonderful introduction to viewers who might not be familiar with the dynamic duo.
