Rassel Cool (real name Mano) is a talented young performer who I met working for Heaps Decent at the Home Base sessions. He wanted to see an experimental film clip for his track 'Running,' the first track on his debut EP, 2:35am, a free download on Heaps Decent.
I shot this video with the intent of displaying Rassel Cool's concept of Mother Nature as a person, and the evocative experiences he's had witnessing her power and beauty. With such an open and free feeling topic, I decided to compile a tonne of stock footage from online and of my own, keeping the shots of Mano very straight, and go to town on the effects. I think it effectively portrays his "trippy" lyrics about the flow of nature.
