On The Cusp, Longlist - Music Video

The Manor, Swazz

Park Village

Elliot Simpson: 'For this shoot we used a really fun technique, we rigged a 360 camera on a pole, that was mounted to the artists, and hidden under their clothes. When stitching the 360 shots together in post, you can hide the mount, creating the effect that the camera is floating above the artists head. Creating a really unique perspective, that feels a bit cartoony, and was great for the artists performance. As always a bit mad shooting with The Manor in our local area for two days, keep an eye out for a cameo from me driving the car at the end of the video'
