New music video for Miss Yellow!

During the summer I went to Hong Kong to collaborate with celebrity DJ and musician, Miss Yellow and partner Kavemura (together they are Yuen Yuen).

During pre-production, the duo picked out all the locations we would shoot. Which was perfect as they are locals and I am not. One of the main locations was a 'boutique hotel,' which was essentially a Hong Kong apartment furnished completely from discarded materials. Something I would have never found on my own.

I also spend the night here after a shoot.

The hotel happened to be around the corner from an LED market, with a huge selection of cheap and colourful lights.

So I made the choice to incorporate this into the look of the video which really elevated the videos look. The camera I used was the Sony A7RII with Sony/Zeiss lenses, and in 4K.

We filmed over two days, which proved to be not enough to get exactly what we needed, an extra day of city b-roll would have been ideal. Among a lot of street locations, we also shot in a dim sum restaurant and an underground speak-easy.

I bought even more LED's for the second day. Such a nice effect!

I was surprised to find out how famous Miss Yellow actually was in Hong Kong. We had a few people stop her for photos...

And it turned out some paparazzi had been following us as well...

Damn Paparazzi!

This christmas, the video finally came out, but in two versions.
