Locky chronicles the course of a love affair with great delicacy in this visual for Irish producer Boku's instrumental track Lacuna. The video examines a relationship over period of time, exploring the highs and lows of their connection, using different media, and the way in which initial passion, and then love itself fades.As things fall apart, the director introduces a striking visual device to drive home the poignancy of the story - the image itself catches alight, burning slowly away, taking the parting couple with it. "We wanted to make a film that really showcased the realities and mundanities of a stagnant relationship, juxtaposed against the energy and romance of the ‘honeymoon period’," says Locky. "This film is them looking back on their relationship: the good and the bad... Either way, eventually, time takes its toll and the memories dissipate."
