An episode of Éclat Isolation Sessions, which I directed, shot and streamed.
Joa Luna – live on Éclat Isolation Sessions:
Directed, shot, and streamed by Ray Wassef
Produced by Ivy Rossiter (Éclat Crew)
Éclat Crew is a collective of female* / trans / non-binary electronic music producers, based in Berlin. Off the back of my own live stream series Shenanz TV, I was asked to capture a series of live musical performances for Éclat Isolation Sessions. Each one-hour live set took place in a location of the artist’s choosing (bedroom studio, attic, co-working space, etc). I composed and lit each single-take tableau to best showcase each act and their creative environment.
What a space! Every direction I pointed the camera in framed so much visual interest. Honestly, we could shoot a mini-series of episodes just in this room alone:
The final, single frame we settled on was designed to showcase specific objects in the chaos (particularly the tusk, the bust and the poster of Marilyn Monroe) which created eyelines pointing toward Joa:
Éclat Crew Berlin’s founder, Ivy Rossiter, also asked me to create a series of promo videos for Facebook and Instagram – a trailer for the entire series, and spots for the individual artists:
