Jake Hargreaves captures the essence of young love in his poignant promo for Marlow. Exploring the rollercoaster journey of new relationships, Hargreaves contrasts a sense of optimism with the harsh reality of the situation, and infuses the cinematography with these battling emotions. Actors Emily Smith and Hugo Hayes convincingly embody the characters, whilst a performance section adds a layer of polish to the piece."Marlow provided such an emotionally-charged track that was a pleasure to work with and develop a video for," says Hargreaves. "I wanted to create a relationship that felt like a preserved memory, with a lush and dreamy colour palette."Evoking a sun-drenched atmosphere that's juxtaposed to the colder, distant moments in which we see the relationship become undone. Capturing the emotional buildup of the song with the performances seen in front of camera."
