Ozzie Pullin directs an entrancing promo for DJ/producer Tourist, taking us into the world of an amateur Artistic Swimming Team. The video for Valentine presents an expression of love and freedom, through the movement of this team of young women, engaged in what has latterly been described as synchronised swimming - and has been a favourite theme of filmmakers since the early days of Hollywood. In this case, Ozzie Pullin adds another dimension to the subject - an element of documentary and an almost poignant tone, that works with the track. So as well some spectacular water work and great cinematography by DoP Spike Morris - both above and under the water - the inclusion of individual portraits of the swimmers gives additional depth and meaning to their work and performance as a team. Cinematic and utterly captivating, Ozzie Pullin has created a marvellous visual accompaniment to Tourist's uplifing track.
