This is our promotional video for ex-Placebo drummer Steve Hewitt's band, Love Amongst Ruin. Our idea, working with a dance company, was to use the juxtaposition of two different choreographed scenarios to create an elegant but tense storyline within which the band would perform. Shot entirely in one location, the film shifts between the ballet style routine in the main room and the band performing in a second room in the background, with vivid back projections to create a strong contrast.
The second scenario created further contrast to the ballet scene with two dancers partaking in jarring, intense and desperate movements, portraying their love breaking down. Additional scenes and shots throughout the film added further intrigue and colour to this effective music promo. Directed, produced, shot, edited and colour graded by the Red Banana team.
