Voltaire Twins music video, photo by Jarrad Seng at http://www.jarradseng.com

It’s been an exciting few weeks!  I was lucky enough to be asked to work as the Movement Director/Choreographer for my good friends The Voltaire Twins for the music video for their newest single, Animalia.  The video was directed by Ben Young and his concept for the direction was very inventive and left so much room for creative movement possibilities!

I met the dancers for our rehearsal the week before the shoot and couldn’t have been happier with the level of professionalism and skill, not to mention how lovely they all were to get along with!  We had a great rehearsal session and got everything accomplished that we needed for the shoot!

The shoot was amazing, when the dancers got into the fantastic costumes, designed by Emma Vickery they transformed into dark, aggressive but beautiful birds!  Despite the wet weather, we persevered and from the playback I saw on the night, there will be so much great footage to use for the final video.

I felt very privileged to be part of the process of making a music video of this caliber, this is going to be a huge project to come out of Western Australia.

The launch of the Animalia Single and Music Video will be held on 20th August at Amplifier Bar in Perth, WA. More details of this can be found on the facebook event page.

I can’t wait to share the final video with you all, watch this space!
