Directing duo In/Out experiment with light and movement on their long-awaited return to music video for UK jazz drummer Moses Boyd.
The pair utilize a series of techniques here to create extraordinary ranges of photographic exposure - Boyd and his fellow musicians become white-hot bright figures in their warehouse surroundings, intercut with ghostlike motion-blurred figures.
The overall effect is an otherwordly yet incisive aesthetic, creating exactly the right mood for Stranger Than Fiction, a stand-out moment of modern British jazz.
"Under the guidance of DP Spike Morris we pushed the in-camera capabilities of film to visually sculpt the music, etching out the track’s propulsive production wherever possible. The materiality of film meant we could really hack the medium to bend and manipulate the images around the music. Having the necessary ingredients in the edit was important to build an arc that does justice to the track, whilst also being true to the in-camera imagery captured on the day.
