DEVONTÉ HYNES & NENEH CHERRY | HE, SHE, ME - COMMISSIONED BY SELFRIDGES
nd track by Devonté Hynes (Blood Orange) and Neneh Cherry, a cast led by actor and model Hari Nef, and a performance choreographed by artist Ryan Heffington, our original film co directed by Selfridges' Resident Film Director Kathryn Ferguson and director Alex Turvey explores a visual response to the idea of Agender. The film is an evolving journey through a subtle push and pull between masculinity and femininity, captured entirely in one unbroken shot, utilising in-camera camera effects in a world populated by out-scaled physical props inspired by Faye Toogood's in store realisation of Agender. The cast of dancers and performance artists are all styled in Agender brands available at Selfridges, including Nicopanda, V Files, Yang Li x Genesis P-Orridge, Bodymap and Rad Hourani.

TWIN SHADOW | TURN ME UP
George Lewis Jr aka Twin Shadow undergoes image-deconstruction and transformation utilising only in camera effects.
"I think it's important to let people take what they need from songs instead of explaining too much about what they mean for me personally. But my friends keep asking, 'Turn me up', what's that mean? I keep saying, Take more from me. Ask more of me. Give me more back. Stop fighting against the things you want the most. I’m surrounded by great people right now, people who are pushing me, like my twin sister Ligia Lewis, my creative director Milan Zrnic, and Alex Turvey, who all worked with me to create the visuals for Turn Me Up. Thanks for turning it up." Turn Me Up is on the forthcoming album titled Eclipse, which will be released March 17th, 2015.

WILD BEASTS | PALACE
'Palace' steps away from the traditional music video format, instead we created a live, immersive installation / performance art experience, designed to trigger an emotional response from each individual member of Wild Beasts. The content of the setting is representative of a selection of images submitted confidentially by each member of WB. The band had no idea what to expect on the day of the shoot, how their images had been interpreted or who’s images had been used. Kept in a closed room until they were filmed, one by one, in a single take. What you see is each member of Wild Beasts being introduced to the content for the first time and their genuine reactions to the objects and people involved.
