videoGhostpoet 'I Grow Tired But Dare Not Fall Asleep' by Thomas James
Thomas James directs a necrotic POV promo for Ghostpoet's new single I Grow Tired But Dare Not Fall Asleep. Speeding through a hellish trip from life to death, the video employs a unique visual style, which flickers from POV to out-of-body, third-person snapshots. Ending with burning landscapes and ghoulish monsters, every frame of the visual elevates the growing tension, and DoP Morgan Sinclair's atypical use of colour adds a sense of doom to the unravelling narrative. Bold and innovative, the concept is a perfect match to the enigmatic track, and a source of nightmare fuel for anyone who tunes in.
