When Portrait and music photographer David Norbut was travelling on a train from Wilmington, Delaware to New York, he was discussing with Jon (singer/guitar) on a loose idea of how they wanted to do music video, but he was relying more on the idea of making moving photographs then anything else. He wanted the video to have the same feel as my photography. With the Nokia Lumia 1020 in hand, he created the above stunning music video.
“I looked at every scene as a photograph first, naturally. Whether I was thinking about light and composition, or how I was going to move through a scene. I just shot it how I wanted to see it. I don’t even think it was a constant intention. I remember saying it aloud to the guys in the band right before shooting… And that was it.”
David shot the music video in a matter of hours in order to achieve a raw, organic feel. Though, in hindsight, he thinks he could’ve used a few more takes and shot more b-roll, you can see how the quick work translates into an intense yet dreamy and fluid atmosphere on the video.
