Saturday, 26 November 2011
Cagoule are very excited to have just completed the lastest music video for The Japanese Popstars. The track called "Shells of Silver" features the vocals of James Vincent McMorrow and is a beautiful piece of music. The directors felt compelled to do the track justice and to paint it with simillarly beautiful pictures.
Photography was captured over 7 days, mostly at first light and the early hours to represent scenes of solitude and isolation. Care was taken not to feature any cars or people, other than the cast of dancers. Particular focus was given to the urban landscape, and the team travelled both within the uk and Poland in search of locations. Directors Abby and Lewis were joined by DOPs Minttu Mantynen and Scott Ward, for the UK locations, . Lewis and Abby then carried on to Poland to complete the stunning imagery for the video.
Abby skillfully choreographed wonderfully simple, gestures of movement, that give the video an artistic integrity and highly emotive response.
The whole project was completed in under two weeks to meet the deadline from the label (EMI Records). A big thank you to all who helped make this video that we are very proud of.
The video is due to be released middle of next week so watch this space!!
