The promo, graded by Mill colourist Luke Morrison, stars James Eeles as a mechanic named Leon and a 1989 Porsche (model 944). The film is a tender and warped love story of a mechanic who is possessed by love, but no ordinary love… he has mechanophilia (the love or sexual attraction to machines, including cars). In an enclosed and surreal world where his dreams, hallucinations and visions feel wholly real, Leon tries to make sense of his spiralling emotions.
Luke comments, "It was great to collaborate with Nick on another
fantastic video for Lapalux. The twisted narrative naturally lent
itself to a vibrant filmic style. I treated each scene with a
different grade, emphasising the mood, by skewing the hue's of the
practical lights and adding in subtle tones to the blacks."
