David Lawrie - Feline Music Video

On two of the hottest nights in August 2013, the video for David Lawrie’s "Feline" was shot in a black-out room, with no decoration on the set.

The idea behind the simple, performance based video stemmed from the song’s imagery of metaphorical branches; reaching out to connect the past, present and future, along with the premise of mourning the death of a childhood friend.

With simple layering in post production, the 'present' is represented by a central headshot, whereas the deathly future and ghostly past are both represented by opposing profile shots.

A small section of stop-motion bridges the gap between the centrally focused performance of the first two sections and the left-right opposing performance of the final section.
