Sonny London's Nick Rutter and The Mill create a latex suit love story for Lapalux's 'Without You'
Working with Nick, The Mill's team was brought in to tell this
boy meets girl story, with a doomed twist. The promo follows the
romance between Natalia Tena (of Motolov Jukebox) and the film's
black latex suit wearing hero as they fall in love.
Chris Scott, The Mill's 2D lead artist, explains "Entering the
depths of Peckham, Nick had discovered a location of dreams. This,
combined with some old German anamorphic lenses enabled Luke to
create a really strong look in the grade.
After sourcing long tongued Mill runners and referencing real gimp
behaviour we were able to take the film to a weird place. Long
hours were spent crafting the look and feel of the final black
Mill colourist Luke Morrison says "To compliment the dark and
striking narrative I felt like the video needed a suitably striking
and vibrant grade. I wanted the grade to add to the twisted
narrative so placed unnatural tones within, almost giving elements
a cross processed look in order to take it away from the norm. I
also worked each environment to have a different feel in terms of
key lighting colours whilst also pushing the saturation and tone of
various elements within the picture to give even more depth and
vibrancy to the picture."
"We are very happy with the final film and a little bit scared,"
