High On Beat

by Syd Briscoe


Bloom Twins: “High On Beat” - 3 mins 34s

This sleek promo for the Bloom Twins' 'High On Beat' blends trippy visuals with a fashion-forward attitude. Director Francis Wallis and cinematographer Ahmet Hüsseyin use offbeat camera angles and washes of neon light to keep the viewer constantly on the back foot, never knowing what to expect from the intriguing visuals.

The film distorts the human body through both clothing and perspective tricks - covering faces, puffing out limbs, and allowing dance moves to leave visual trails in the air. It lends an uncanny air to the piece, as though the audience is being pulled into a drug trip just when they thought there were beginning to come down.
