Two strangers. An illusion of a life lived together.
A spoken word music video.
Visual approach: To strongly restrict perspective for each character depending on whose account we are seeing and for this to tie in with a progression of colour palette reflecting emotional state. The whole piece centres around the character's perception of the state of their relationship.
Key technical approaches
- Single source & hard light; often avoided on darker skintones I used it to give a graphic quality to the characters at certain points to heighten the emotional states.
- Haze & black pro mist; to counteract to varying levels the contrast created by the above approach I introduced these elements.
