In Anna Brooks nostalgic promo for Isabel, we see the artist viewing frames through a vintage handheld slide viewer - with each picture magically transporting us to a dreamy vignette. "The concept for the video came from a love of the static photograph," Brooks explains. "I love how images can be sources of reflection, nostalgia and ambiguity. Growing up, we used to have a 35 mm projector at home. I used to find the whole experience so magical and tactile. When I found an original '90s version on eBay I knew it needed to feature in the video."I loved the idea of the music itself having the power to bring Isabel to life and break through the picture. As she performs in her own wonderland, her partner's remains locked in that moment only breaking the illusion through a blink or a glance."The evocative promo boasts a vintage, effervescent aesthetic, care of DoP Adam Singodia and colourist Vlad Barin (both previous guests of the Promonews Podcast) and was shot on 16mm. "Shooting on 16mm film was a no-brainer and felt like the perfect medium for the concept, keeping it all within the same analog world," says Brooks.
