Music video edit for for Berlin electronic band, Ducks!
One of my many collaborations with these fellow Berlin-based, Sydney expats. Director Harriet Clare took the band Ducks! (singer Lani Bagley and producer Craig Schüftan) to the park on the windiest day ever, where she shot kites in flight and the musicians pretending to fly them. My job was to make the resulting footage look somehow connected. I took the extra step of cropping the footage, from its original 16:9 to a 2.17:1 aspect ratio. This unusually panoramic frame shape focuses more on the tiny dancing figures, both on the ground and in the sky, and also offers an unexpected take on the lyrics, “Tiny, tiny in the giant world”.
