Mill+ Director FILFURY teamed up again with MJ Cole, Cedric Gervais and Freya Ridings on the mesmerizing music video for their latest track ‘Waking Up - Remix’. An amped up version of the first installment, following the same protagonist played by FILFURY’s son Bow. The film is beautifully shot, with strong visuals which evoke a sense of boundlessness and inspiration.
Director FILFURY, comments on their collaboration "It was an honor to be approached again by MJ COLE and Ministry of Sound. When they asked me what I’d do for the audio REMIX, I naturally wanted to REMIX the first video, but this time invert the idea. An empty desert to contrast the gothic interior space of the first film, and a bad boy European sports car doing dust donuts. In contrast to the BMX on country lanes; inject the warmer, sunnier vibes of the track into the concept of the original creative. The result is a video that suits the new mood of the track, a choppier edit to the dance beat, whilst keeping an abstract tone and atmosphere to complement the beautiful vocals."
The film was graded by The Mill’s Colourist Matt Osborne, who complemented the film with a delicate earth toned color palette.
I’m waking up…
