Vesper – Electric String Quartet
In the summer of 2018, we were approached by violinist Jessie May Smart to produce a music video for her electric string quartet, ‘Vesper.’ She’d found us online and watched through some of our previously produced music videos and short films.
The purpose of the project was to showcase the band’s versatility and draw in new potential clients. Jessie had already produced a studio-recorded mix containing parts of 4 popular tracks which was provided to us at the development stage. As the recording was a locked mix containing 4 very different songs, we suggested filming the quartet in 4 different scenarios to help break it up into ‘moods’. For each song, a different style of direction, choreography, lighting and camera movement was applied. We avoided a narrative because we felt it would distract from the purpose of the film.
