Broke & Drunk

This was the first underwater music video for the director and myself. The director had some experience operating on some other underwater projects, so he brought along a great technical knowledge and skill in switching between oping and directing. It was a very long one day shoot to get everything, but am quite proud of how the images turned out. The video was split into roughly 3 sections. One B&W scene where we played with the high contrast caustic light patterns, one with a golden spotlight rigged over the water, and then one with her laying down half-submerged in water in a baby pool with a remote head above spinning 360. It was also very cold out when we filmed this, and the singer was quite intrepid to lip-sync underwater amongst all the floating fabrics and strobing lights.
