A fantastic use of light and shadow in this video for Col3trane and Miraa May’s track “Rendezvous” by London-based director Jamie Whitby (previously featured here). Inspired by the films of Fritz Lang, the story is told through the projections of its main characters. As Whitby explains:

“I love how [Lang] uses shadow to keep the main action off-screen, withholding visual information from the audience. I also love how he uses shadows almost like doppelgangers, telling a different story to the one being presented by the lit character. That’s what inspired this video for Col3trane, which presents an overblown, almost clichéd bank heist narrative entirely through the shadow’s cast by the action off-screen — two performers quite literally projecting an elaborate fantasy onto the walls of a crumbling, abandoned leisure centre.”
