Partizan's Sophie Jones Directs Dreamlike Promo for London Singer Roses Gabor
Partizan's Sophie Jones’ first official music video as a Darkroom director is her second collaboration with artist Roses Gabor. The promo is a dreamlike sequence of vignettes, juxtaposing the peaceful countryside with a group of dancing men.
Set against blue skies and luscious greenery, Roses gazes wistfully out of a car windscreen while a group of men jump and mosh nearby. While their intention is unclear, their emotion is undeniable. The slow motion cuts focus on the smaller details of the movement, adding a new dimension to the vignettes.
Following on from the striking casting of ‘Illusions’, ‘ICBY’ features an array of unusual faces and figures. Sophie’s work is very visual and considered, surprising the viewer with unexpected angles and carefully chosen shots.
