The process of conceptualizing this video was a bit different from the usual, as Jamie wanted to discuss ideas with me directly and try to find out something that we both loved. We agreed we wanted to set the video in nature, but we were struggling to find a twist that could give the video character. That’s when I thought of a friend of an artists friend of mine who had shown me pictures of his praying mantises that he collects: that was what we were looking for.
Working in such a big forest and then moving to a small barn and shooting those little bugs with a macro lens (all in one day) as my first UK shooting experience was not too shabby.
First couple pages of the storyboard, which turned out to be a veeeery loose reference only.
I can’t find images of the shoot for some reason, so here we go straight to grading session.
