“Strange Fruit” Music Video
The photography studio saw its first music video last Friday and I learnt that it is possible to decorate the walls with wallpaper using only camera tape! It was also the first time in 3 years since I had collaborated with fellow DOP Edmund Curtis, see our last short film “Osgood’s” . Shot entirely on a Canon 5D Mark II using both a 50mm 1.2L and 100mm 2.8 lens. Our brief was to highlight the very talented skills of make-up artist Nisha Grace Smith through a cover of Billie Holiday’s song “Strange Fruit”, covered by the up and coming singer Emma Michelle.
The final film and behind the scenes video will be up in the next few weeks, so for now please enjoy these screen grabs. For more screen grabs please visit my Flickr page.
